We began today with an early wake-up at 6:30 in order to get ready for our passage to Martinique. We got off of our mooring first thing and said a quick goodbye to St. Lucia. While raising our sails, a pod of dolphins swam by off our port side! But unfortunately, they were too far away for us to identify the species. After raising our sails, our chefs, Brit, Ridge, and Joseph, cooked us a wonderful breakfast of eggs and bacon. Then we had a leadership class underway led by Jade. In the class, we discussed the principles of organizations and groups we have seen and their effects on individuals within the groups. Afterward, we discussed and planned the schedule for our upcoming week. We then broke into watch teams as we made our way to Martinique. Our amazing chefs then made a delicious lunch of carbonara with salad. We sailed to Martinique until we arrived at about 3:00 P.M. local time. As Captain Carolyn cleared us into customs, we relaxed and studied on the boat. For dinner, we ate chicken wings with french fries. To finish the day, we had a small Marine Biology fish ID quiz where we were shown pictures of fish and had to identify them correctly. After the quiz, we learned about arthropods and crustaceans.
