Location: Marina Cay
Today we learned patience. Everyone had woken up by around 7:45 am, and everyone was excited for the long day ahead. We were told that we would leave Anegada and sail to Marina Cay when the laundry was finished. Typical of a sleepy little island, the laundry turned up at around 11am. By that time, a storm had moved in and large, gray clouds had filled the sky. We decide to wait the worst of it out, which was another 30 minute delay. By the time we were en route, it was 12:15 pm, and still storming. During the sail I had to endure a medly of Eli’s crazy impersonations. A couple of other things that spiced up the 3 hour sail was rain and high winds. I was still at the helm and the adventure was not over there; as when we were docking, the boat scraped against against one of the more treacherous docks in the BVI. The day was not over yet, and we gulped down a quick tortollini dinner before all the students gathered to listen to a motivational speech. The day ended there, and we were all excited for the following day.
