Location: Capri, Italy
Today, the fourth day of the month of July, we, the crew of Argo honored the struggles of our ancestors by participating in the Pan-Hellenic/Italian Olympics. Held on board in the crowded Capri anchorage. We enjoyed brief shore leave in Capri before returning in the afternoon for the festivities. Our three watch teams competed against each other in activities varying from scavenger hunts to timed sail-raising. By the end everyone was thoroughly soaked and the deck was littered with debris. Although not everyone was a winner, every team had at least one gold medal in a specific event. A spectacular Fourth of July and we are all looking forward to visiting the fabled Blue Grotto in the morning. On a side note, being in Capri has enabled us to witness some of the most impressive yachts in the world. Here is a list of just a few of the yacht anchored nearby, be sure to check them out online: Siran, Mirabella V, Katya, Selene, Pestifer, Limitless, Yeratel G, Azucar, Utopia, Sai Ram, Pegasus II, and Silver Angel.
