Location: Spanish Town, Virgin Gorda, BVIs
After our first night of anchor watch we awoke to the delightful sounds of Ocean Star’s fire alarm around quarter to seven. The fire drill was followed by a breakfast of the finest cereal. The new divers went in the water for their second time while the veteran divers put on Ocean Star’s sails. Before we picked up anchor from Savannah Bay we experienced our first day squall, its wind blew the rain into our faces at speeds of 40-60 knots. The sun reappeared after a few minutes and then we were off. Outside of Savannah Bay we raised our sails for our first time. We learned tacking and how to rescue someone if they fell overboard. When we arrived to Spanish Town, Dan took the dinghy into customs while Beaker explained the abandon ship drill. The sun is now setting as our crew anxiously awaits our first long voyage tomorrow morning.
