It was another amazing day at sea again today as watch teams continued to rotate throughout the night and day. We had our first whale sighting of the trip! We believe it was a pilot whale that was spotted about 50 yards off the port side of Argo. After lunch, the shipmates had the pleasure of watching “Shark Water”- a documentary about sharks seen through the eyes of a speedo-wearing merman. After the video, Roratonga was in sight. The group worked together to lower the sails and prepare the boat for anchorage. As we motored into Roratonga, the sun was just setting over the ocean. Tonight the students are putting the final touches on their first Marine Bio paper that is due in the morning.
