Location: Tobago Cays to Bequia

It was a beautiful morning in the Tobago Cays this morning. It was about 85 degrees and sunny like every other fantastic day in the Caribbean. We had a breakfast of eggs and bacon. Before it was time to leave the Cays, we had marine biology class and learned about many different amazing marine organisms. After class we started preparing the vessel for passage. Passage prep generally consists of clearing the deck of any personal belongings, and putting up the sails. After we left the bay we raised the boat’s two jibs, and started our passage to Bequia. On our way to Bequia we spotted a pod of pilot whales swimming near the boat. There were about 20 of them in total. When we were almost at Bequia, we celebrated Eliza’s 18th birthday with cheesecake and of course singing happy birthday on deck. We arrived in Bequia in the dark and did a quick cleaning of Ocean Star followed by some highly anticipated sleep. It was another incredible day in the gorgeous Caribbean for the crew of Ocean Star.
