“Sail Caribbean was absolutely life changing. I got to sail the BVIs with my best friends, get bosun certified without having any prior sailing before the trip, learn so much about the ocean and marine bio, and swim with turtles for the first time. I was actually given the chance to perform a lion fish dissection and actually teach others about fish systems and how cool they are. My greatest challenge was probably realizing that a lot of your participation and efforts on board affect others so you should really try to be involved and promote positive behavior.”
