Samut Prakan, Thailand — Today the crew woke up for a 0730 breakfast and then we got right into it. We hauled anchor and motored through the maze of Tapioca barges to clean air, where we raised sails for the first time. With 5 sails up and making 7.5 knots the new crew of Argo got their first taste of what life is going to be like for the next 40 days. Our sail was cut a little short while we assisted the Thai Marine Police with an accident at sea. We finally made it up the river at 1800 and had a much earned dinner. No rest yet however, anchor watch around the clock here!
