Open water divers finished there confined skills dives! They were all very excited to get out and do the open water diving in the afternoon. The non-divers spent the morning ashore paddle boarding, snorkeling, and kayaking. The Tango students are really bonding and enjoying getting to know each other well as a team and even as a family. They all went out on the stand up paddleboards and kayaks together as well as enjoyed a snorkel together. It’s amazing to watch how fast a group of students can go from being total strangers on the first night to best friends by day 4.
Some of the Tango students also participated in some water sports like wake boarding, water skiing and Poparazzi, Sail Caribbean’s infamous watersporting tube.
We had a two hour sail over to Great Harbor in the afternoon where we picked up a mooring ball on the first try! Another visiting staff member came over for dinner and she said that this was one of the happiest boats she’s ever seen. All the students were doing their chores and cleaning, and they were all having such a fun time while doing it.
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.
