Today was an exciting day on Argo. Our trip log at 10:30 am was 617 nm from our departure point in Phuket, Thailand on Day 1. We are passing north of Sumatera heading out of the Andaman Sea. We have spent the majority of passage so far motor sailing in hopes that the wind would pick up. Early this morning we raised the fisherman and flying jib. We are currently sailing engines off, under full sail, on a broad reach. Shipmates are beginning to get the first taste of the seas, steering under sail, and the heel of the ship. Also today we caught our first fish. The fish was a wahoo big enough to feed us all with a delectable Cajun dinner.
