On Monday night it was finally time to hoist the anchor and set sail for the first time with our new teen group. There has been a steady wind from behind and Guppy is making really good progress. We are accompanied by quiet a few dolphins and even four whales were spotted! The nights have been clear so we’ve been gazing at stars while the almost full moon lights the path of waves in front of Guppy’s bow. So far our young crew has been doing really amazing, coping with all the new tasks on a rolly ship! Super proud of them. And we’re all excited to spot our first Island which should happen sometime tomorrow 🙂
