Location: Sandy Spit, BVI

As we sailed away from GHP, it was disappointing to have such a lack of wind and so an inability to practice sailing, although we did have the sails up. Yet, as we approached Sandy Cay, our mood changed drastically. Admiring the small island, our crew and staff eagerly swam ashore with our bellies full and satisfied from our scrumptious lunch. Following extensive beach games and invigorating exploring, we came back to Ocean Star with time to spare and an opportunity to study. After dinner, the shipmates hunkered down, ready to hear about our watch teams and procedures for the passage to Nevis. To wrap up our day, we watched an inspirational video about Irving Johnson and fell asleep thinking of our adventures to come.
