Waking up before sunrise, we began our day with a hike at The Bight on Norman Island.
After watching the sun rise over the seemingly infinite amount of sea before us, we headed back to boats, enjoyed a refreshing morning snorkel, and prepared a tasty breakfast. Nourished, we prepared ourselves and our boat for our first de-mooring and set course for Little Harbor on Peter Island.
With our boat on course, we learned how to set a Mediterranean anchor and enjoyed lunch. Not too soon after we arrived, we took the 26-foot Colgate sailboat for a spin, bringing it back to the docks and getting back on a really fun speed boat ride.
Immediately needing a wake-up dunk in the ocean because of our predawn wake-up, we took a snorkel around Little Harbor and saw turtles.
After a quick dinner, we relaxed on the bow before getting to bed early. Looking forward to another beautiful day in the British Virgin Islands!
The greatest challenge during the program was staying entertained during the quarantine period. Not being able to leave your boat and not having a phone, which was a crutch against boredom, it was difficult at first to stay entertained.
