Today we began with getting ready to head to Saba. We took sail covers off and made sure all our lines were run clear and attached to the sails. Before we raised our sails, we were surprised by a fire drill. We split up into our watch team groups and undertook our tasks to fight a fire, which included getting out of our large fire hose.
After we finished fighting our imaginary fire, we prepared to raise our four sails. This time, the staff stood back, and we showed off what we learned these past weeks by getting the sails up by ourselves. This passage was definitely one of our easiest passages yet, only taking around 7 hours to get arrive at Saba. After we got in, we had shower time, then dinner and a sailing class at night. Saba is so pretty, and I can’t wait to go on shore tomorrow.
