Location: Saba

After having a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and a night out it was time to leave Statia. Waking up to wonderful banana pancakes, everybody was ready to crush the day. After attending marine bio in the morning it was time to start passage prep to head to Saba. Our passage was another passage that was 100% lead by students. Everything was done by the students again including navigation on charts with no electronics, raising and dropping sails, helming so on and so on. Our passage was a real toasty one today and quite fun. Evan and Nick caught a wahoo, which was the 3rd fish of the day after 2 early barracuda landings. Reaching Saba after 3 to 4 hours of sailing it was immediately shower time to cool off and freshen up. Many people decided to try to learn how to back-flip, some successful and some not so much but all in the spirit of good fun. After everyone was cooled off and cleaned up it was dinnertime, another wonderful meal and a fresh wahoo to fill us up. Ending tonight with Maritime studies concludes the wonderful day of November 27th.
