Argo has been sailing will all six sails up and no motor running all day, which has been exciting for those of us new to the sailing world. Today in MTE class we watched footage of Irving Johnson’s 1929 trip around Cape Horn in the cargo ship, Peking. I believe that after watching that video everyone gained a new respect for those that came before us. Everyone is finally settling into the watch routine. Each watch brings us closer together and as we bond we become increasingly proud of our teams. We’ve even gone so far as to start a friendly competition. Those of us on Watch Team 1 have challenged teams 2 and 3 to an air band competition, which will be epic.
