This morning we woke up to a sluggish start as many of the shipmates were up late into the night finishing their literature reviews for oceanography. We prepared the boat for our sail to Lavezzi. It was a beautiful sail along the coast of Corsica to the tiny island of Lavezzi. We anchored near the rocky coast and sent some divers out to explore the water. The rest of us took advantage of the wind, water, and chance to relax. But the wind was forecast to get too strong for Argo to stay so close to the rocky island, so we packed up and sailed toward Cala di Volpe. This was our best sail yet, with Argo finally topping 10 knots for us, and now we are anchored safe and sound in Italian waters.
