Kimball Union Academy and Gifft Hill School Head to Sea

B watch: Jessie, Michael, Stephanie, Max, Cole, Zi, John and Sydney

We had our first anchor watch early this morning. We woke today on anchor between St. Thomas and little St. James. Students from both KUA and GHS read aloud their continuation story then developed that night. We then ate a breakfast of French toast, bacon and fruit at 8:30am. After breakfast, we quickly did our chores then proceeded to raise our sails. While on course to Vieques, we had class rotations which consisted of active watch, seamanship and a history lesson about the Caribbean. During our history lesson with Mr. D, we spotted two Dolphins! After eating popcorn and relaxing in the sun, we anchored near the city of Esperanza, Vieques. We jumped in the ocean to bathe, playing ball, and having fun. B watch set out plates, utensils and a great meal. We are excited for the upcoming bio bay tour tomorrow night and also exploring the waters of Vieques.
