We awoke to a lovely morning at Long Bay where we enjoyed breakfast before starting on our pre-departure checks. After we raised our anchors, we had lots of time to sail around in the Sir Francis Drake Channel, practicing our downwind sailing before arriving at our destination for the night, Salt Island.
Once we anchored, lunch took place and soon enough everyone headed to shore for a hike to the top of one of the peaks and got to see beautiful views all around! This vista lookout entertains us with sights of many of the BVIs all at once.
After the hike, it was the perfect time to relax on the boats and enjoy swimming around in the water. What the night had in store was a delicious dinner and ample time to hang out some more before boat meeting and bed.
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.
