Happy Saint Patty’s Day! We woke up to some good old Irish tunes and gobbled up our morning grub of breakfast burritos. We then transitioned into an optional fun dive, and for those who stayed behind to relax, some free time and a nap. We were thrilled to have homemade pizza for lunch before a couple of hours of shore time and were back on board by 3 o’clock for Marine Biology class. During class, Brendan gave us a very entertaining presentation about sea turtles. Cheers to him! Since it was a holiday, we got a green cake for dessert, which was a nice treat before buckling down to getting passage prep done. Once the whole passage prep checklist was completed, we set out for our overnight passage. It was our first self-skippered passage and went incredibly well. Although we raised the mainsail and staysail, the seas were so calm we had to keep the motor on most of the way. Each watch team works together smoothly now, and the passage went by quickly. Most of us even got in a whole six hours of sleep! We arrived in Antigua by around 10 in the morning, and the Mediterranean moored on the dock. Hoorah!
