The morning started at 6:30a.m. with the staff motoring to Bitter End while the students slept soundly. All three boats arrived by 8a.m. with the student’s awake and eating cereal and bagels for breakfast. Jack and Keith cleaned all the dishes and put away all the food away quickly as everyone was excited to get to shore.
At 8:30a.m., all the crew jumped into the dinghy and RIB and were shuttled across to the Bitter End to start a hike. The hike was up and around Bitter End with amazing views and fun trails. Sammy, Sydney, and Danielle took photos of the crew at the top of the trail. The way down was much easier and cooler for everyone.
Back on the beach, it was time for rotations of multiple fun activities. Everyone had the chance to sign up for sailing different small boats and a bunch of various water sports. Jack, Hill, Sydney and Sammy went out wake boarding straight away. It was so much fun and very exciting as both Sydney and Sammy stood up for the first time on the wake board! They were extremely pleased with themselves! Jack and Hill tried out the wake-skate and did some 180 turns and a few jumps over the wake. Max went out on a 420 and a Sunfish with Daisy from I Am Free. John Moffett and John Milton took out a Hobie Cat and raced across the North Sound. Sutton, Keith and Addi went out on Popparazi and had a blast!
The crew of Miss You rotated throughout the day, stopping for lunch at the restaurant for burgers and pizza. The girls went out wake boarding again after relaxing on the beach for a while. The John’s, Jack, and Hill went out on the small boats again in the afternoon because they had so much fun the first time. It was quite windy, so they were keeling over and got a surprise as their trampoline gathered up some small fish! It was quite the experience.
At 5:30p.m., the crew went back to their boat for dinner and showers. Dinner was breakfast-for-dinner. Addi and John cooked bacon, eggs, baked beans and pancakes. At 7:30p.m., the crew went to Saba Rock for a short social and a smoothie. By 8:30p.m., the crew was ready to return to Miss You and sleep. It was a fun-filled day of activities which everyone made the most of and definitely wore the students out.

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.
