Location: Marina Cay, British Virgin Islands
Today began with cereal for breakfast. Following this, we raised the anchor and set the sails. We sailed out on a beam reach towards Anegada. The seas were calm and the winds fresh. Just before lunch, we jibed and headed towards Guana Island. We ate chicken caesar salad wraps for lunch underway. We sailed between Great Camanoe and Guana Island, dropping anchor under sail at Monkey Point. We then shuttled over to the rocks for snorkeling. There are so many little fish at Monkey Point that you really do have to push them out the way to see the larger fish beneath. We spotted some large tarpon, yellowtail snappers, and even another turtle. Back on board, we motored to Marina cay, putting on the sail covers as we went. Upon arrival, we dropped the anchor. With some free time before dinner, we showered, and some had a rather competitive game of “Uno.” Dinner was a BBQ. After grillin’ and chillin’, we watched a slide show on fish for science class, seeing many photos of the common fish down here to help us with our identification skills.
