Yesterday was cooler (only 85º) and still dry. The early morning cloud cover burned off quickly. The wind dropped to 10 knots by afternoon.
One Coral Reef Sailing crew arrived yesterday. They will spend the next week with Capt. Scott Penfield aboard S/V Chanticleer. They should have a great time. Captain Scott is a long time volunteer Scouter and has raised a few Eagle Scouts (with assistance from his charming wife Gail). Coral Reef Sailing crews aboard S/V Silent Harmony and S/V New Horizon were on base for shore leave yesterday. We do not have any more new crew arrivals until Saturday.
The program is progressing well for the Scuba Certification crew. They completed much of their classroom work and their 200 yard swim and float yesterday. They will work on the Confined Water Training Dives (pool) today and tomorrow they will finish in the pool and maybe head out for their first Open Water Training Dives.
Our IDC candidate did MUCH better yesterday. Captain Bert Hubby will have him well prepared for his Instructor Evaluation this coming weekend. We are going to the reef and pool again today. With 15 knot winds from the east it will likely be bumpy and cool.
Have a great day.
