Location: Gorda Sound, Virgin Gorda

Today started out with a hearty breakfast and an informative and entertaining Marine Biology class. Without a second wasted after class, we stormed onto Prickly Pear Island, where oddly enough, we did not see one prickly pear for some small sail racing. This is where it gets good. After a practice run around the course by both teams, it was announced that the next race would be for ALL THE MARBLES. In the beginning, it was close, a real nail-biter. However, after Eric and I hit the water, it was very apparent that we had the race in the bag. That’s why, now, all the marbles rest securely in the pocket of Eric and me.
