There was a double rainbow during a light rain shower right after breakfast! Because of the rain, we were able to have a relaxing morning on the boat talking, playing cards, and doing some cleaning in preparation for our cleaning inspection later in the afternoon at docks.
After the showers passed, some of the students had a blast doing Poparazzi (Sail Caribbean’s infamous water-sporting tube) and a few others hiked up one of the other peaks on Salt Island for an amazing view of the islands.
We later reconvene on our home vessel and sailed over to Nanny Cay, having lunch underway. Lines were fast on the dock by about mid afternoon.
After finishing boat clean and passing inspection, the students were able to enjoy some free time and go to the shops. It was clear everyone relished in the opportunity to get some sweets from the localgrocery store. Air-conditioned land showers are always a favorite at Nanny Cay and afterwards, we sat down to a heart family-style dinner, followed by everyone turning in for an early night.
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.
