This morning, we had an early morning at Soper’s Hole and headed over to Nanny Cay Marina to drop off our divers! After docking and having a delicious breakfast, our divers dove the Fearless at Peter Island and the rest of us sailed to Little Harbour at Peter Island. We med-anchored our boats in Little Harbour and spent the rest of the day turtling, water-sporting, and hiking. Two of our students caught turtles that we were able to measure, tag, and document!

After turtling, we went to shore and hiked to an abandoned villa where we saw quite a few goats. The hike was followed by showers and dinner on our boats as well as a relaxing night onboard. We had boat meeting where we played fun games like Hot Seat, Rose-Bud-Thorn, and Highs and Lows. We powered down to bed to get ready for our Race Day coming up!

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.
