Sailing and Mangroves

Jul 17, 2006

Location: Gorda Sound, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

We started the day off early this morning at 05:00 to get Ocean Star ready for a sail to Anegada, which is about 14nm from Mountain Point. When we reached Anegada we were able to go ashore for a little while to explore, look for flamingos in a nearby salt pond and eat wonderful food from a local bakery! After we returned to the boat we sailed to Gorda Sound, where we anchored for the night. We then went for a snorkel in the mangroves, which was interesting because we got to see some of the fish we learnt about in our previous class/fish slide show. We had stir fry for dinner and then a slide show on invertebrate. At the end of the day everyone was exhausted from a long but fun day.
