Location: Passage to Nevis
Today, we woke up to Julia and Matt’s scrumptrilescent egg, cheese, and sausage sandwiches, truly a delight to the senses. Then we cleaned up and left our beautiful little isle and motored to Spanish Town. On the way, we practiced a man overboard drill, saving the life of a large orange floatation device. We cruised around Spanish Town for a couple of hours, where we had access to phones, internet, groceries, and ice cream, before dinghying back to Ocean Star to get ready for passage. Our first passage was quite an experience; we split into three watch groups, each controlling the boat for three hours at a time through the afternoon and night. Natty, Mark, Julia, and I held it down at the bow for a while, singing sea shanties and Disney songs under the stars, while Luke, Matt, and Aspen rocked the helm before we relinquished the watch to the next group, which sailed us through the night.
