Today was day four of the journey. The day started with our splitting up into four watch teams, each of which was led by one staff member. Each group was shown and taught the names of the sails and lines, which was followed by reviewing safety and survival techniques in an abandoned ship drill. After lunch we set sail for the first time for the afternoon. While out on the water, we practiced a few different maneuvers with our watch groups, and also had a man overboard drill. It was a beautiful day and everyone had a good and exciting afternoon finally setting sail for the first time aboard Argo.
