Location: Young Island

On the morning of November 1st, everyone awoke as themselves once more. Will and Ben, Margeaux and Zoe, and all the other crew who had traded identities for Halloween were once again their respective selves. After watching Sinister the night before, spooky conversations filled the air over a breakfast of yogurt and granola. Right after we finished cleanup, we picked up the anchor, and Steve began motoring us towards Young Island, another anchorage in Saint Vincent where we would be able to get our COVID tests the following day. While we were motoring over, we had leadership lead by Margeaux in the salon, in which we had a group discussion regarding organizational leadership. After an hour-long discussion, leadership ended, and Adelaide came down to start Oceanography. Although it was a rocky ride, we all made it through class and arrived at Young Island.

Although as we left the salon, we were greeted by a rainstorm, we all enjoyed seeing the familiar sight of this anchorage as we were here a few weeks prior. Following some study time, we had a lunch of sandwiches with fillings including; chicken, mozzarella, pesto, tomato, and other ingredients, with a side of broccoli and carrots. After putting on foul weather gear for clean-up and braving the storm, the crew was all fueled up, and those of us getting our rescue diver certifications hopped into the water for some rescue diving exercises.

After showering and drying off, Zac, Jodie, and Ben presented a dinner of burrito bowls which we ate in the salon because the rain had begun once more. Following dinner, we learned how to use emergency oxygen for our Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver Courses, and we created our emergency action plan so we can start our rescue scenarios.

Well, I think it’s time for me to sign off, talk to you guys in 20 days 🙂
