Location: English Harbour, Antigua

This morning, the crew got to sleep in until 8 for the first time. We then enjoyed a much-appreciated breakfast of waffles, bacon, and sausage compliments of Ian. After eating, we began Boat Appreciation. We spent a while cleaning, tiding, and scrubbing both above and below deck, taking inventory of supplies and fueling up at the fuel dock. Once the boat was squared up, we ate lunch and prepared to dock on the other side of the channel to the Nelson’s Dockyard. Upon securing the boat to the dock, we gathered in the cockpit and began a Seamanship lecture on safety.

In the afternoon, we had study time to work on our assignments and study for our upcoming quizzes and midterms. We took advantage of the extra space that the dockyard provided and spread ourselves out over the boat and dockyard to study. At dinner time we were called back to the boat for grilled cheese and tomato soup.

After cleanup, we had another Seamanship class then we were dismissed to shower in the freshwater showers in the dockyard and go to bed.
