Location: The Bight, Norman Island
Today was the first day we left the dock. We sailed to Norman Island – about a 3 hour sail – having to zig-zag all the way there because of the wind direction. When the engine was turned off it was a great moment. At dinner, several people named it as their favorite part of the day, saying that it was amazing to think that such a big boat could move under only wind power. Everyone on the boat got to help tack at least once, if not more. We learned how to work the sails and the lines, drop the anchor, and hook a mooring ball. Later tonight we are meeting up with kids from another program to do activities. It should be a fun night.
