Nearly Deserted Islands

Feb 20, 2013

Location: San Blas Islands, Panama
Author: Connor Maloney
Today we had a very eventful day on Argo. In the later part of the morning we arrived in the San Blas Islands, a group of islands off the coast of Panama, which is inhabited by a small population of indigenous people. There are around 300 islands, but only 40 are inhabited. We were immediately greeted by a couple of local women selling their homemade goods. Needless to say we all went crazy in purchasing them. We then had lunch and began our boat appreciation. We all helped in cleaning, washing, and putting the sails away. We also got clean sheets which were loved by all. After dinner we had a Student Leadership presentation and a PSCT class. We hope all is well at home. Skipper of the day Connor
