Today was the first full day of our passage to Bonaire, and there is no land in sight. Off the bow, stern, port, and starboard is water. You would think there is not too much to do on a 110 ft. boat, but there is a lot of activity aboard Argo. We have three watch teams that rotate through three hour shifts that go throughout all hours of the day. We raised the fisherman sail for the first time; that brings our sail count up to five. Now that we are all starting to get our sea legs life goes on as normal. Today was also the first time for us to have classes while on passage. We are making a transition from doing a bit of sailing then anchoring to sailing with a bit of anchoring here and there. Currently we have a guest aboard Argo from the office who helped build Argo. Jason is working on a celestial navigation certificate, so he can be seen on deck with a sextant, as well as providing conversation. It has been a good day and we are starting to get in the groove.andlt;br /andgt;andlt;br /andgt;andlt;br /andgt;andlt;hr width=’100’/andgt;andlt;div align=’center’andgt;andlt;tableandgt;andlt;trandgt;andlt;tdandgt;andlt;
