As we pass from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic, Argo’s crew become members of the Order of the Rock, a traditional merit given only to those who pass safely through the Straits of Gibraltar. Today was also a day of firsts: not only did we get to know our new watch teams, we raised our new sails for the first time as well. As one of the people manning the halyard, I can definitively say that it did not set easily! In summation, we say goodbye to the Mediterranean and Europe as we sail for Morocco and open ocean.
