Location: Ko Sichang, Thailand
After sailing in fast through most of the night on a broad reach, the wind slowed down in the early morning and we turned the engine on to help us get back to Ko Sichang quickly. Watch teams held us on course through the morning, and after lunch with had an oceanography class where we sampled water at the surface and at depth to test salinity, temperature and dissolved oxygen, followed by a final review in Nautical Science. As the wind was getting lower and lower, we took sails down right before dinner and arrived back in Ko Sichang, where we started the voyage on Argo 37 days ago. The evening was spent doing an oceanography review and studying for final exams tomorrow.
