Day 10 – July 5, 2011
Today was a beautiful sail from Oyster Pond to the European Island of St. Barths. On “Full Deck,” Nathan was captain of the day and enjoyed being at the helm along with Ali, and Matt, and Maddie. Ali was navigator for the day, plotting a course around Molly Beday and past Ille Fourchue in to Gustavia. Spirits were high as the entire crew aboard Full Deck sailing along to “The Sound of Music.”
Upon arrival, Chloe set up a quick drop for Full Deck aboard Sher Khan. Titus was captain of the day and was at the helm for the dedocking and docking. Just before departure, Bri and Eric made delicious pizza bagels so that everyone had energy for the sai. It was a “challenge” sail raising for Shere Khan today and they pulled of a beautiful sail raising all on their own, making sure to keep their patience and lower the sail when it got caught on the lazyjacks. Mallika got to set up the quick drop today, and had a good time hitting the spin lock open with the winch handle.
Upon arrival to St. Barths, everyone was excited to use the exceedingly nice dock showers. As folks showered and settled in to Gustavia, everyone made calls home before settling down for a dinner of fresh stir fry.
