New Day, New Country

Author: Dan
Location: Dominica
We awoke early this morning to extract our anchor out from underneath a French cruising boat in St. Pierre, once free we set the sails and made our way towards the jungle island of Dominica, a mere 35 nautical miles away. The passage was a quick beam reach, speeds were good and the sail was exhilarating and after an Oceanography class and lunch we were nearly there. On arrival the normal routine of a wash down and a bit of polishing and waxing led into shower time, delicious Cincinnati Chili, and a gorgeous sunset complete with a green flash. Now a Student Leadership Development class caps off the perfect day. Everyone is excited about the great adventures that await us here on the breathtakingly beautiful and mysterious island of Dominica.
