I Am Free started off the day at 8:00a.m. Bel and Charlotte prepared breakfast for everyone. After breakfast, the Open Water divers, Charlotte, Skylar, Jack, Sam P. and Matteo went to shore to continue with their confined water skills. It is their last confined water morning, which is super exciting because they will be closer to being qualified divers really soon!
While the divers were underwater learning new diving skills, the rest of I Am Free joined up with the other non-divers from Spyglass and Miss You and went to shore. Onshore, we went on a short walk to an amazing look-out spot on Norman Island. The view was incredible. We could see the waves crashing over the reef and the water was crystal clear. We then played a few games such as ‘Points of contact’ and ‘Rhythm-master’ to break up the walk. Sam L. was our rhythm-master while Callum was the detective trying to catch Sam out! It was a lot of fun. We walked back down the trail and Matteo and Ben jumped in the water to cool down. With the divers returning at 11a.m., everyone headed back to boats and was ready for lunch. Daisy and Tomer prepared lunch for everyone.
After a short lunch, we set sail for Nanny Cay which was across the Sir Francais Drake Channel. Both sails were raised and Miss you flew across to Nanny. At Nanny, the crew had phone time and shop time. Bel, Charlotte and Daisy bought some ice cream while the boys browsed through the shops.
By 5:30p.m., the crew had showered and was getting ready for dinner. Dinner tonight was Philly Cheese Steaks, which went down like a treat. Once dinner clean was finished, we had an ice cream social with another fleet called Chavo. There were 56 students on the beach, chatting, playing football, mingling and eating ice cream. It was great fun! By 9:30p.m., everyone was exhausted and ready to fall asleep under the stars!

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.
