Location: Underway to South Africa in the Indian Ocean

The constant flow of people traffic moving up the companionway to the transom, scrambling for their tethers with a panic-strewn look upon faces confirms that the motion of the ocean has taken a firm hold on some crew member’s stomachs. Even so, spirits remain high as Argo remains on course to reach the East coast of Africa in a week’s time, concluding the last of the major ocean passages this Fall and with it the sense of a huge achievement amongst the crew. Officer of the watch (team 2) Grace Huang celebrates turning the 21 this evening and has vowed to mark the occasion in style… English tea and cookies midships at midnight, all welcome!
