Location: Atlantic - 38.00N 24.18W
Land is finally out of sight and everyone is excited to be back on the open water. Knowing that we have a much shorter passage ahead of us, we’re all ready to take in our surroundings. We got to know our new watch teams and continued to learn about navigation and using charts. We’re still motoring along with only two sails up, but wind can’t be far off. The anticipation is building and each of us are looking forward to seeing all of Argo’s six sails up again. It’s not all fun and games though; many of us took our first saltwater shower since being docked and the water was still freezing! but we ate fresh brownies on our early morning watches today so all in all it’s pretty good we even saw dolphins and some pilot whales during dinner. Today was a great day of snacking, learning and eagerly looking forward to our next destination.
