S1 Day 11 Ships Log
Captain of the Day: Samantha
Today was a great day for our fleet! We woke up and headed straight to Long Bay on Beef Island. Everyone went on a truck tour around the Island or Tortola.This included breathtaking views and delicious smoothies.
When we arrived back on the beach there was a lot of trash for us to pick up for our cleanup! Everyone pitched in to help and we ended up with tons of trash.
Afterwards we had a couple hours to relax and enjoy the beautiful white sandy beach.We ended the day with a splash and got in the water to swim with bioluminescence, that was definitely one of my favorite highlights of the whole trip. It was so awesome to watch the water light up with sparks of green.
Today our crew did a great job of working together and we need to work on anchoring. The quote of the day was “I’m Glowing” by Jules. Our miracle moment was getting to the top of Tortola on the truck tour and seeing the amazing views of the cliffs and Caribbean waters
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.
