Day 17: Tango Heads Back To Hodges Creek

Posted Monday, August 1st, 2011 at 3:37 pm


Today the crews of Da Vinci and Zenon woke up at Monkey Point on Guana Island. They cooked up some eggs and bacon for breakfast and enjoyed breakfast burritos before beginning to pack their stuff. Mid way through their packing and cleaning, Emma hopped into the ski boat to initiate a game of PANIC! The crews worked together to kayak and bring random items from their boat to Emma. This included a can of corn which Connor dropped to the bottom of the ocean. He was a trooper about it, and spent the rest of the game trying to retrieve it. Luckily Frasier was on hand to go get it and Da Vinci were overall Panic winners.

The next challenge for each crew was to dress their captain and mate in ridiculous outfits and take them to the ski boat. Once everyone was there,  Emma gave them their final challenge  of having the whole crew sit on the kayaks. Zenon was triumphant in this. After PANIC wrapped up,  it was time to clean and pack. Everyone’ s spirits were high as they cleaned the entire boat.

After lunch, they had the chance to have their last sail back to where it all began: Hodges Creek. The dockings were perfect and the crews worked really hard to make sure it all went well. On docks, it was time to finish packing and get ready for the evening’s activities. The crew worked really hard to put together a presentation for the YEP students. We ate dinner with YEP and gave them the canvas we had designed and painted. They were all thrilled to receive a Sail Caribbean t-shirt each. We spent the rest of our time there playing board games and hanging out before saying our final farewell to our new friends.

We then headed back to Hodges Creek to have our awards ceremony where the winners were announced for the Chili Cook Off, the Cake Off, PANIC and the crew/bosun tests. The final thing on our schedule for the night was skits. This was a chance for the students to make fun of the staff before the staff had the chance to retaliate. After skits the crews headed back to boats to hang out and write plane letters. It was a late night and none of the crew was looking forward to waking up at 4:45am tomorrow morning.
