Location: Gorda Sound, Virgin Gorda
Today started out with a hearty breakfast and a 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 I.
