Today, we had long sail from Anegada to the Dog Islands. We had excellent sailing conditions which made it an eventful and thrilling day out at sea. We moored at one of the islands and many of us went snorkeling to discover all that the beautiful and renown site had to offer.
Our Ocean students participated in a lesson which covered the Elkhorn coral and why its so important to the BVI. Afterwards, our class proceeded to go diving on a Fish and Coral Identification expedition which was amazing!
Next, our crew simulated a sailing drill of a man-overboard which we completed under two minutes! We anchored at Mountain Point for the night and enjoyed a beautiful sunset and swim, as we tend to like to do 🙂
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.
