Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda

Today was a great day. It began with a filling breakfast of oatmeal before learning the ropes aboard our fine ship Ocean Star. From the jib halyard to the main sheet, those nautical nominations were mastered. After we could tell our stern from our dorados, we hoisted sail and tacked and jibed around the Anegada passage, eventually dropping anchor in Mountain Point, where we will spend the night. After a great chili dinner, our first Nautical Science (MTE) class will discuss what we accomplished today.
