We awoke on anchor at Mountain Point at 7 a.m. and had a delicious breakfast buffet. Our divers left on a morning dive and our non-divers had some free time on I Am Free until we departed and started our sail to Nanny Cay Marina on Tortola. On our sail, we practiced downwind sailing and got ready to dock at Nanny Cay. After another successful docking, we cleaned I Am Free and had lunch after our divers came back.
Once lunch was cleaned, we had students from the YEP Program (Youth Empowerment Program of Tortola) visit us on our boat for the afternoon. We got sodas altogether, and then had some free time where we got to explore the shops and marina. After the YEP Students left, we went to the pool and then got ready for showers. After dinner and a special treat of ice cream, we completed a rescue mission for our turtle that was stolen by our friends on Alpha fleet. We then prepared for bed with our wonderful turtle safe and sound on I Am Free.
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.
