Location: Terre de Haut, Les Saintes, Guadeloupe
Today we woke up bright and early to prepare for our first day underway. First we ran through a long list of duties at the dock preparing the deck, chart house, galley and our bunks. We then set sail and in the open water we learned how to properly raise the sails as a team. On the water we practiced emergency fire routines and were broken into our boat watch teams. Each team spent two hours controlling the boat; which included steering the helm, bow watch and boat checks. As the sun went down we had our first night sail, and got an incredible view of the starry night sky. Some of us even saw our very first shooting stars. After sailing past Guadeloupe we arrived at our destination of Les Saintes and anchored for the night!
