The day started with a train ride to Monaco to visit the Oceanographic Museum for OCE and OCB field trips, and shore time to explore Monaco. We saw lots of interesting creatures and historical pieces at the museum and flashy cars and yachts around town. The crew met up with Beaker and Dan at 1500 to make our way back to Argo for voyage prep. We prepared the sails, deck, and dinghies in good enough time for shower time. The water in the harbor is salty but refreshing. Our chefs made us delicious fried chicken and veggie meal which we enjoyed after discussing our favorite part of the boat during the squeeze. After dinner and cleanup we found out our new course of sail is to Porto Venere, Italy, and got underway and out of the harbor around 2100. Watch three took the helm and the crew enjoyed the 20 knot breeze and bright moonlight. It is nice to be sailing again. It was also nice to have Jim Stoll, his son Jason, and Travis join us.
