Location: Underway to St. Lucia
Bright skies and a small breeze from the east was the scene today as we continued our journey west towards our Caribbean destination. Classes today were Oceanography followed by SLD, where students presented on self chosen topics that ranged from mixed martial arts to old time shag dancing. When classes were concluded, Argo came to a halt over a 6,000ft sea-mount, of which the peak was still over two miles below us for a bit of swim time. Everyone was given the usual brief about pelagic predators (ie. oceanic white tips) and afterwards didn’t hesitate in jumping right in! With everyone back on board Argo came back on course and continued into the sunset for dinner.
