This morning, the students enjoyed their first lie-in of the program and slowly awoke to the rocking waves of the BVI’s gentle waters. Downwind sailing was practiced in the morning and students learned the importance of tying a preventer and the safety needed to carry out a jibing maneuver.

Around noon, a Mediterranean anchor was put in place to hold us for the night in Little Harbor, Peter Island. The whole Tango crew snorkeled with a sea turtle around our boat! Everyone was so excited with all the sea life around the bay.

In the evening, we listened to a marine biology lesson about bio-luminescence, preparing us for an snorkel taking place later in the evening where we were personally able to witness its magic! The evening finished with a dance party on the bow and then right to bed to prepare for many more adventurous days to come.
