First Day of Passage

Oct 4, 2011

Location: The Big blue
Author: Lucy
This morning we prepared Ocean Star for a long passage to Grenada. We left Nevis in the early afternoon and made our way to Rodonda (also known as Dragon Island) where Kevin is Supreme Jester of Dragons and put on a full dragon costume. We then had shower time, but the current was really strong, so we had to jump one at a time off the bow in order to not float away. After drying off we split into watch teams for passage to Grenada. We cycled through watch teams 1, 2 and 3 for the remainder of the day and all through the night. We have watch for 3 hours at a time and the other six were usually spent sleeping down below. A few of us spent the night over the side of the boat being sea sick and the rest of us were pretty tired the entire time. It was all worth it though!
