Day 15: Sail Caribbean Olympics

Posted Saturday, July 30th, 2011 at 3:15 pm

This morning we were greeted by curious sea turtles as we ate breakfast: Always a good omen for the rest of the day. We headed for an epic morning of Sail Caribbean’s Olympics: the two boats competed in events like the “Fender Relay,” “Synchronized swimming,” and “Sand Art.” The crew of Full Deck turned their captain and mate in to the queens of a “queen of hearts,” while the crew aboard Shere Khan turned their captain in to a gigantic singing I-Pod! Both boats were definitely doing their very best to compete with something original!

After a long morning on the beach, we then headed back to boats for lunch before demooring in order to sail over to Ille Forchue. Upon arrival to Ille Forchue, we went out to the point for a late afternoon snorkel, where some folks saw a nurse shark! We then headed back to boats for dinner, and then took our crew and bosun exams. Everyone passed their tests with flying colors!

After they were done with their tests, everyone headed off to bed early so that we could wake up early the next morning..

Aboard Full Deck, they fell asleep to Kieran playing violin while starwatching… It has been a good trip so far, and we had a lot of things to remember and savor as we looked at the stars.
