Foxtrot and Sierra Day 13

By wpdev July 26, 2014

Captain of the Day (Geneve):  Sara “Simba” Clarfield
Mate: Sara “NHIV” Holmes
Navigator: Riley “Brave” Kirkpatrick

After having a breakfast buffet and using bathrooms on land (which we didn’t have to pump!!), we were the first of our fleet to leave the marina.  We traveled for about three hours and SMOKED the other boats.

We blew them out of the water. Lol.  Betsy wanted pictures, so we turned around and danced by the catamarans that fell behind us; casually throwing fruit from time to time.  Once we were all on the mooring ball, we snorkeled, worked on projects, and went turtling.  There were many squids, fish, a stingray, and a few turtles.

There was chicken alfredo for dinner and brownies for dessert.  After, we enjoyed an interesting lesson on invertebrates of the sea by Ashley.  All in all a great day! J

Curriculum Covered: use of Genoa, tacking, compass use, and motor sailing
Today our crew did a great job of having a good time together.
We need to work on staying awake at our boat meeting.

Miracle Moment: Kate throwing an orange that into Isandra’s sailbag.

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.
