Waking up anchored off Sandy Island was a nice distraction from our scheduled Marine Biology exam. After some breakfast, I briefed our crew on the day’s events: A little last-minute studying before we took our test, and then prepare for our passage to Union Island, where we put up the fifth sail for the first time. So much fun! The crispy brand-new flying jib helped us rip through many tacks and jibes; some skills the crew had to practice. While sailing, the crew boat raced, our favorite hydrating activity, where two teams race in drinking their water bottles. After a day of sun and rope burns, we find ourselves anchored off Union Island, taking ocean showers and preparing to embark on a shore excursion.
