Bravo 1 Trip Update Day 20 – Luke, Mate
Today the crews of Sao Jorge, Vivaldi, and Monet awoke off-docks for the last time. After climbing out of bunks and enjoying the scenery of Great Harbor, there was time to relax a bit before beginning the final boat clean-up of the trip. The entire interior of the cabins were polished to perfection; the students tidied their bunks, scrubbed decks, and pitched in with whatever jobs needed doing to ensure that as much work as possible was completed before heading back to docks. The boats had a fantastic if short sail back to Hodges Creek Marina. Seeing the progression of the crews from being entirely new to sailing to taking their boats back across the channel completely on their own is quite impressive — the crews performed beautifully.
Once docked at Hodges, more cleaning ensued, followed by a little bit of down time to hop in the pool, call home, and unwind after a very busy program. Dinner was delicious pizza for both Bravo and Charlie students together, with everyone mingling and chatting like old friends. The crews had an hour after dinner to perfect their skits before performing them for the other crew, the staff, and the Sail Caribbean dive staff, who have been Bravo’s instructors for the past 3 weeks. Much fun was poked at the staff, and everyone had a good laugh during the crew award ceremony as well.
Tonight on docks the students have a little more time hang out and enjoy new friendships before heading home early tomorrow morning!
