Location: Samut Prakan (the river)
Samut Prakan, Thailand — First day of classes on Argo!! We all gathered in the cockpit to learn oceanography and scuba diving from Chantale. After lecture, we watched a PADI video while Boomer was talking to Thai customs to decide our fate. At 10:30 we received a call that it would be a bit longer before we could be on our way to Malaysia, so we made the best of it and learn knots from Jason, Katie and Scott. By 1300, it was clear we wouldn’t be able to set sail today, so the shipmates went into town to get some last minute munchies for the upcoming 6-7 passage. After dinner we had our first MTE class (nautical science), then bonded over some card games. Anchor watch again tonight!
