Today we awoke early to haul back the anchor and set sail for Cartagena. With 5 sails set we headed out to sea to begin our 130 mile passage. The crew broke into watch teams shortly thereafter which allowed us to rotate through navigating, steering, and checking the boat during our watches. We enjoyed a mid-day break from the watch schedule for lunch and class during this time the crew was introduced to the Nav Master portion of MTE and learned about Bony Fish in Marine Bio. After the mid-day hiatus we continued with watch teams underway throughout the night, gathering again for dinner at 1800. The sailing was good and the company superb, another magnificent day at sea on Argo.
