Day 1: The Foxies Meet Their Captains and Mates

Posted Saturday, August 6th, 2011 at 8:27 am

Most of the students arrived back at Hodges Creek finishing their Open Water course. After lunch at the pool they got to go into town and do water sports for a bit to have a change of pace from the docks at Hodges Creek. After they returned from their adventures they were able to move onto the boats that would be theirs for the next 13 days. On Geneve with Captain Kelly and mate Nate is Melissa, Jessica, Taylor, Amelia, Logan, Sandro, Christian, Tirad, Matt, Kaveh, and Spencer. On Van Gogh with Captain Elise, Mate Bailey and Program Director/Mate Graham is Alex, Maggie, Hannah, Katie, David, Jake, James, Mitch and Dylan. At 7:00 we all had a classic Caribbean dinner of baked chicken, coleslaw and rice back on the boats to get to know each other a bit better. When dinner was cleaned up everyone headed to have the ‘Mike Talk’ where Mike discusses the rules and expectations for the 14 day program. After a few ice breakers and time spent getting to know a little bit about each other the crews went to sleep under the Caribbean stars excited to set sail the next day and see what adventures lie ahead.
