Captain’s Log. Stardate 7/12/17.
Yeeooo! What’s up! Skipper of the day Jack here — coming to you live from the… Atlantic ocean! Yep. Officially out of the Indian. Just a few hours ago we passed Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point of Africa, and into another ocean.
Today has been a day of milestones aboard Argo. Late last night we passed the 7000 nautical mile mark in total mileage traveled. 7000! With 223 of those miles coming in the last 24 hrs (another record, we believe). Besides the breakneck pace of the boat, we’ve had a relaxed day aboard Argo catching up on work and talking about… Cape Town. Oh yeah! The finish line. So much sailing, sun, and fun has led us to this! With our expected arrival at first thing in the morning tomorrow… Our final destination is within reach, and we all feel it. Even Argo! She. Is. Flying. Late last night Claire Miller set a speed record on the helm at 15.1kts! That record reigned supreme until literally a few moments ago when the captain himself, Ben, showed us all how it’s done with a masterly 17.2kts! Let’s go!
See you at the finish line! Yeeooo!
Shoutout to Charlie, Nick, Nate, and Jeff. Here we go, boys.
