Little Harbour to Soper’s Hole, Tortola
The crew of Miss You woke up to the smell of french toast being made by their Captain Will and Mate Liz. Everyone was delighted with not having to cook breakfast! After several helpings of food, Hill and Jack tag-teamed the clean up and the crew was ready to leave Little Harbour and head to the next destination. At 10a.m., the ball was dropped, with Max as skipper, Sammy as her spotter, Addi as relay, John-Jack and Keith as de-threaders. It was a smooth de-mooring and within minutes their sails were up! The crew circumnavigated the island of Jost Van Dyke, with high winds and rocky seas. It was a very enjoyable experience and a great sail! The sail trim was on-point and they got up to 9 knots!
The sail led them to Soper’s Hole where they moored the boat and had a cleaning inspection before heading to shore. Soper’s Hole is made up of multiple shops full of t-shirts and food, which Sydney and Danielle especially enjoyed perusing. John, Sutton, Jack, Hill, Max, Jack and Keith ate at Pusser’s Restaurant, buying burgers, pizzas and fries. Some of the crew loved buying some pretty cool souvenir t-shirts.
For dinner, it was chicken fajitas, which went down like a treat. After dinner, the crew headed to the restaurant Fish N’ Lime for a social with the other two boats. It was a cool restaurant on the waterfront with comfy couches and a dart board. The crew bought some sodas and had fun hanging out with everyone. As the fantastic day ended, we had a boat meeting and eventually headed to bed.

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.
