Location: Falmouth, Antigua

If anyone who is reading this has ever watched the show Dirty Jobs, please know that the whole crew has turned into Mike Rowe. While Clara, Griffin, and Ben are on bilges, Grace on rust stain remover, and Kylie and Lulu in the laz, Kiki and I clean Narnia under our bunks. Also, we had Sara clean all the regs/dive gear, and Eva and Jules inventoried and cleaned out all the disgusting cabinets. Doron and Jack spent hours in the anchor locker, and our two chefs, ML and Casey, had to smell bilge all day and, with the hatches closed, looked like they were in a sauna (one nasty sauna). Even with all of that, we still love B.A. I had an awesome day full of laughter and loud music. Mid-day, just after lunch, all those not rescue divers got put to the test after a very fun EFR scenario. We definitely improved from the last time, and there were only two casualties, so I call that a win! (lol). I also had a great time with Lulu trying to help Sara, who had a “jellyfish sting,” and at first, Sara’s acting was so good I actually thought she was hurt! Then we dumped vinegar water on her arm, and the truth came out : )
We finished off the day with our last ocean showers, and I never thought I would say it, but definitely gonna miss it. Sunset ocean showers are definitely a lot of fun, and playing music makes it so much better. Tomorrow is the regatta, and I wish I could say I wasn’t nervous, but I am. Our prime competitor is Argo, and the stakes are high. Everything about sailing and each other has added up and now will be tested over the next three days. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s (and the next three days) blog to see how we fare!

Signing off for the last time
