Location: Mountain Point
Fifth Day of our journey. We awoke to the beautiful Caribbean blues, skies and water. After breakfast we were given our two papers for the trip, the group research project and our individual literature review paper. After this we began to prep the boat for departure to Mountain Point. After an early lunch and a thorough rundown of the ships rigging we were ready to set sail! Placed into our respective watch teams we all eagerly lifted our sails into the beautiful Caribbean sky. While under way with sails proudly raised we did some maneuvering, learning how to tack and jibe the boat. We also had our first emergency drill for fires on deck. Upon nearing our destination we gracefully lowered our sails and put Ocean Stars to rest. After our hard work we got to shower at our destination and enjoyed a swim in some new waters to top off the day.
