Location: Calvi, Corsica

Today was an excellent day! We arrived early doors, and watch team 1 dropped the anchor and sat watch into the morning. We had a late breakfast at 0830 and surveyed the mountainous backdrop of Corsica. Showing our appreciation to the good ship Argo, we cleaned and scrubbed her decks for a few hours before lunch. After lunch, those of us who chose to learn to dive went through our PADI knowledge reviews and are looking forward to diving in the Mediterranean tomorrow. Most of us managed to get into Calvi for a few hours in the afternoon before an excellent Mexican night dinner and IYT sailing class. It was an incredible sunset over the 15th-century citadel of Calvi as our 8th day of the program drew to a close.
