Location: Guadeloupe

Awaking at the crack of dawn, 6:00 am, we set out for another day of adventuring on the high seas. We shot out of the Saints on our way to Guadeloupe, having breakfast underway, making 8 knots on sail power alone. After an MTE lab, where we figured out our speed over water using only old bread and the length of the boat, we pulled into Guadeloupe and dropped anchor. After putting the boat away and quick lunch, we dinghied over to Pigeon Island for a fantastic dive at the Jacque Cousteau Marine Park. During the dive, we were lucky enough to see a big old sea turtle and a large octopus. After that was a bit of free time, where some people went ashore to gather data for a project, and a few others stayed on board. Tonight, we’re watching a blue planet video and setting sail for Antigua at 10:00 pm to arrive by morning.
