Location: Gorda Sound, Virgin Gorda

Today was a fun-filled, busy day. The morning was a hive of activity around Ocean Star as the shipmates took their nautical science exam – you could hardly see the deck for charts! After lunch, we took Hobie Cats to the beach, split into three teams (based on the watch teams), and spent an afternoon relay racing the small catamarans around the sound. Watch Team 1 was triumphant, but it was a closely fought match with each watch team winning one race of the heats. In the late afternoon, we welcomed Ocean Star’s sister ship, S/Y Argo, to Gorda Sound as she motored in to join us. We spent the evening sharing a phenomenal BBQ on Ocean Star before everyone went over to Argo for a tour.
