In Richard Henry Dana’s,Two Years Before the Mast,an1800s account of a sailing trip around the America’s, Dana explains the traditional sailors way of resting on Sundays. All unnecessary work and chores were suspended and the sailors were allowed a brief respite from the grueling life aboard a working ship. Mind you, Ocean Star life could hardly be described as grueling, but this is still how the students chose to spend Sunday. Whether it was the historical setting of Ocean Star in Nelson’s dockyard or the availability of leisure activities in southern Antigua, it was a pretty easy day. After a morning Marine Bio class the students split out for soccer on the beach, the internet cafe and for a look around at the super yachts lining the docks.
