Location: Pigeon Island, Guadeloupe

This morning started with carrot bread and cereal and was followed by our PEN class, during which we learned how to plot CTS. This was an accumulation of all the previous skills we have learned so far in the class. After spending an hour doing three problems, we set off for Pigeon Island to the north. This passage was our first student lead passage, where one person from each watch team was in charge of doing all the boat checks and making sure we stayed on course. After a few hours of busy bow watch, we arrived and anchored. We then continued our EFR training, where we learned about secondary care. Part of this involved making slings for broken arms, bandaging wounds, and learning about different types of wounds (clearly demonstrated on an orange). In preparation for our fish ID quiz tonight, everybody got together and ate a delicious dinner of taco bowls.
