From Red Hook to Coral Bay

Watch B- Marina, Landis, Evan, Jesse and Jack

Today we woke up and embarked on our first sailing mission. We gathered to raise the sails as a team and left RedHook and started towards Coral Bay. During the journey, we broke into groups and learned the complicated duties of maintaining a vessel and participated in researching the turbidity of the waters around us. We learned how to tie knots, stand bow watch, how to check bilges, plot our position on the chart, and much more. After we arrived and the anchor was dropped, we gathered as a team once more to furl the sails. After a seven hour boat ride of hot sun and a quick rainstorm, everyone jumped into the water for an evening swim. We cannot wait for tomorrow and thr adventures it will bring.
