To start our morning right, we began with another two dives, one at The Indians and the other at Black Forest. It was the first time the whole “family” was able to dive together and we were rewarded with two HUGE Eagle rays and lots of Blue Bell Tunicates.

After lots of food, we set sail on one of our longest sails of the trip, heading for Mountain point, Virgin Gorda. Each of us took the helm at one point along the way, practicing (and mastering) tacking.

After anchoring and a snorkel, we all took a time out to watch possibly the best sunset of my year so far! After dinner, Zosha led a discussion on an interesting scientific paper focusing on Hamlet colour pattern before we all crashed once again, early to bed for another day of adventures!

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.
