Location: Mountain Point, British Virgin Islands
We started the morning off with breakfast of assorted cereal and fruit, followed by our first seamanship class during which we reviewed all the sails and lines on Ocean Star. With 6 sails and over 30 lines to learn and memorize it certainly was a lot of material to cover. But the crew was up for it and rose to the challenge with success. This was followed be a quiz for the Open Water Divers before lunch. Then we hauled both anchors and headed to Mountain Point where the Open Water Divers completed their first Open Water dive with enthusiasm. Later certified divers explored some underwater swim throughs and caves with Simon, while others climbed up to the crows nest. After dinner it was a slide show for oceanography followed by an early bed.
