Default Sailing Takes Me Away: Day 2

Day 2:¬*Sail to Guana Island and¬*Marina Cay¬*
This morning kicked off with a briefing from our flotilla lead crew, discussing our itinerary and giving us some pre-cautionary tips to keep in mind before hitting the water.

We then boarded and set sail for our first destination in the British Virgin Islands. After sailing for approximately 2 hours, we arrived at an area just off of Guana Island called Monkey Point, a well-known snorkeling hot spot. We picked up a mooring ball and spent a few hours swimming and exploring the magnificent coral and marine life.

From there, the group set sail to Marina Cay, a private island of just four acres. An interesting fun fact about Marina Cay is that it was inhabited in 1936 when an author Robb White built a house on the Cay and wrote the book, 'Two on the Isle', about his experiences. After mooring just off shore, we boarded our inflatable boats and visited the island for a rum punch party, followed by a sunset dinner at Pusser‚??s.¬*The perfect ending to a great first day on the water!

Here is a brief video of one of our media guests learning to hoist the main sail on our first day!
