I Am Free woke up excited and ready for the day! For breakfast, the boat had banana eggs for breakfast, a new dish for everyone to try. The recipe came from one of the Irish staff members, Aoife, from another fleet. Daisy, Benjamin, Bel and Tomer thought it was delicious, but the rest of the crew decided to have plain eggs and bagels, instead. After breakfast, the Open Water divers, Charlotte, Skylar, Jack, Sam P., and Matteo went to shore to continue with their confined water skills while the other I Am Free crew teamed up with the Spyglass crew and went over to Salt Island for a beach clean and a small hike up Salt.
The views from the top of Salt were beautiful and you could see the dive site of the Rhone. Alex, the Captain of Spyglass told the tragic story of the Rhone wreck. The crew then returned to Cooper to have lunch of pizza bagels. Callum and Sam. L prepared lunch for everyone. After lunch, the program director, Oliver, came over to the boats and taught a turtle tagging lesson, shortly after everyone jumped in the water and searched for turtles. Unfortunately we didn’t see any today, but it was still very exciting.
The afternoon ended with a cannonball competition on I Am Free, with Callum and Sam leading the way with impressive splashes. Dinner was chicken stir-fry, which the whole boat enjoyed. After clean-up the whole fleet went to shore to have a soda social and get to know one another. The evening ended with a short boat meeting and the schedule for tomorrow’s activities. It was a fulfilled day that everyone enjoyed.

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.
