Location: Gorda Sound
January 13th started out with a beautiful sunrise near Spanish Town. From there, we sailed for about thirty minutes into Gorda Sound, where we began to learn the ins and outs of our new home, Ocean Star. After lunch, we separated into groups for scuba certification lessons and for a trip onshore to the Bitter End Yacht Club. At around four o’clock, a group of students and faculty went on a scouting mission to find the next day’s dive. After a successful journey, we sat down for dinner and discussed our day. The night was capped off with a slide show on sea life that we would be encountering the next day and important information about them. After some free time, we all went to bed excited about the day ahead.
