After our breakfast and muster we got chores done as quickly as possible so we could make our way over to Francis Bay, St. John. We left our views of St. Thomas after a perfect sunset and tacked our way over. We passed a bunch of cool islands including Jost Van Dyke. We got to anchor surrounded by crazy yachts but wilder views. We were all super excited to finally get to the beach. We spent a couple of hours on the beach and had a writing class with Adam. It was a great time to reflect on some aspects of the trip, while sitting on a beautiful beach. We headed back to the boat where we had some off time while the sun set. Then we had dinner and eventually that led into our shanty night. 4 groups of 2 performed for the crew and students. Something that some were looking forward to, and others not so much.
