Today is one many of us have been eagerly anticipating- the start of our Atlantic passage from the Cape Verdes to Grenada in the Caribbean. We had some shore time this morning to tie up any loose ends- the last call home or email sent. Some also went to a local school to drop off some baby food (which made its way onboard at some point in our Moroccan provisioning). We got Argo ready to sail while awaiting our turn at the fuel dock. After a top off we set sail to a good beginning- the engine is off and we are sailing out to open ocean with a top speed of 10.6 knots! What a great beginning to our longest passage yet. We’re all very excited and enjoying the first day.
