On Thursday, 15th June 2017, Sierra School students and teachers, Margarita, Zéphyr and Fabrice enjoyed a splendid sailing cruise thanks to the generosity of our sponsor Marc of Freesouls Group. Freesouls' 18 meter sailboat was an amazing context for our marine adventure. Marc and captain Marcelo guided us from the La Paz Marina to one of Mexico's most famous and beautiful beaches, Balandra Bay north of the capital city. When sailed out of La Paz, dolphins greeted us and we watched them frolic in their natural habit. As we pursued our cruise, Marcelo presented us with a scrumptious meal of fresh fruit--mango, papaya and melon served with homemade pancakes and maple syrup or jam. The meal was both healthy and indulgent! On our way to our destination, we passed a group of sea lions, some playing in the water, others flopped on the rocks. Our students were impatient to swim to shore. Marc proposed safe and fun activities: we could dive off the bow, paddle around in kayaks or swim to shore only once we were close enough. As we enjoyed the extra fresh water, cool at this time of year, Marc and Marcelo launched the zodiac for all those who wanted go ashore at Balandra. After an hour of water play, it was time for us to head back out to sea and trim our sails. All in silence, the motor off, we listened to the wind in the sails and the water lapping at the hull. Soon we were back in La Paz, with thanks to Marc and Marcello for another absolutely exceptional Sierra School adventure!
