Location: Savannah Bay, Virgin Gorda
Today dawned early for the 16 shipmates and 4 staff members aboard Ocean Star as we all woke up for a 6:30 AM swim test. After a delicious pancake breakfast, we sat down and had a chat about our expectations and policies for the summer, and general life aboard. Shortly thereafter we cast off our docklines and headed up the Drake channel towards Savannah Bay at the other end of the BVI. I was very impressed with how well everyone worked together today, from getting off the dock to hoisting sails. Everyone was extremely enthusiastic and eager to learn, and most importantly, kept their spirits up, even at the end of a long day of sun, wind, and sailing.
