Today was a relatively calm and standard day on Argo. We are underway enroute to Gibraltar sailing close hauled with the prevailing winds coming from almost exactly where we want to be heading, requiring frequent tacks. The wind has been blowing tons of waves and spray over the deck making this the wettest passage yet. Today has been a great day for wild life, with frequent but short visits from dolphins off our bow, a few Minke whales at lunch time, and a large pod of 10-12 pilot whales following us at dinner time. We’ve kept with the watch cycle we are all so familiar with and a sighting of Africa is keeping morale high for what’s to come.
