Location: Soper's Hole, West End, Tortola, British Virgin Islands

The staff of Ocean Star is excited to welcome our 13 new shipmates! All arrived safely before bedtime and most had time to settle in and explore West End before our pizza dinner. We will be up bright and early tomorrow morning for a swim test, and then will be casting off our dock lines and beginning our adventure. Shipmates and staff will take turns writing blog posts daily throughout the trip, which will be posted as the internet is available. (Don’t worry if you don’t see a post for a few days, it just means we are somewhere awesome off the grid.) We hope you enjoy following our journey; we’re certainly psyched to start exploring!
