Day 16

The fleet woke up at Oil Nut Bay, excited for a long sail back over to Cooper Island. After a delicious breakfast of oatmeal with assorted fruit, we began de-docking and motored through the narrow channel to Virgin Gorda’s North Sound. The North Sound is a world renowned location known for its natural beauty and perfect location for wind water-sporting! After raising sails, students enjoyed stunning views of the islands as the fleet cruised to Cooper Island on a smooth downwind sail. 

After picking up mooring balls at Cooper, the fleet settled down for a relaxing afternoon of kayaking, tubing and Colgate sailing. Some students left on the dive boat to finish up their Advanced Open Water certifications or just to enjoy a recreational dive, while others hopped over to Salt Island for a beach clean. A total of 12 extra large size bags were filled! 

Later in the afternoon, the beach cleaning students came back with a dinghy piled full of trash. As the divers also returned to their boats, they were welcomed with a delicious dinner of pasta carbonara. After the delicious meal, each boat’s crew gathered for a boat meeting to debrief the day, and then headed to bed.
