Today was a fantastic day! We hauled our anchor out of the river once and for all! We set sail on the Gulf of Thailand and away we went due south to Malaysia! The day was a pretty relaxing one; the breeze fresh, the water clear and as blue as sky, and smiling faces all around to finally see what this trip is all about Sailing away! After a couple of classes on deck in the afternoon we started our watch system. Every 3 hours a team of sailors rotates through steering, bow watch and engine checks. Everyone also experienced their first bucket showers and thoroughly enjoyed it! So, with some wind right off our starboard bow filling our sails, a line off the stern, catching some tales, we sail, we smile, we experience, a great day for all and many more to come!
