Sierra & Foxtrot day 7

By wpdev July 20, 2014

Mate: Lauren

Navigator: Jack

Nanny Cay to The Bight, Norman Island.

This morning we woke up for breakfast at 8am, After Breakfast and a quick clean of the boat we were free for an hour to get ice cream or drinks and do a bit of souvenir shopping, Jack, Hill, Lauren and Emma got matching shirts and bracelets!




We left Nanny Cay at about 10ish and headed to the Bight on Norman Island. It was quite windy and we got both our sails up! Once we arrived we prepared lunch of Mac and cheese.


All divers, Fun divers, Open Water and Advanced went diving. The more advanced divers, Elliot and Max came across one green turtle and one hawksbill turtle. The non-certified divers, Jourdan, Emma, Lauren and Avery got to swim around shallow waters and spotted a nurse shark, which was awesome!! The non divers, Olivia and Eleanor, joined another boat and went exploring a cave and snorkeled.


By 4 o clock we went back to the boats, took showers, had chicken curry and finished with a boat meeting. Everyone was so tired so it was an early night!

Today our crew did a great job of putting our fins and masks away and keeping the boat clean. We need to work on doing our chores without being asked by our captain and mate. The miracle moment of the day was seeing our first nurse shark.

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.
