This morning, we woke up at Little Harbour on Jost Van Dyke and prepped for a big sail! We sailed off of our mooring ball for the first time and then we circumnavigated Jost Van Dyke. After circumnavigating Jost van Dyke, we set our sails for Brewers Bay on Tortola. On our sail, we enjoyed some bigger waves and stronger winds!
We anchored at Brewers Bay and then headed to shore to do a beach clean and explore the beach and campgrounds. We later made our way back to our boats and did some exceptional rounds of water sporting.
After tubing, we showered and made a delicious dinner of pasta with sautéed vegetables. We cleaned our boat and then had a boat meeting in which we started to prepare for the big Olympics games tomorrow. After boat meeting, we powered down and got ready for another big day!
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.
