Location: Atlantic - 36.40N 12.39W

We finally got wind! Today started out a little rough, the swells were a fair bit larger, and a few crewmembers were already feeling it. By early morning, the seas were filled with whitecaps and our sails are filled with wind. For a moment, we even reached 11 knots with only the sails! With our engine off, we started preparations for Argo’s holiday season. The saloon was decorated in paper chains and snowflakes, cookies were baked and the movie “Elf” was played in the spirit of Christmas. In class, we learned how to determine Course to steer for our Navigation Master exam. We ate dinner while watching the dolphins play in the swells beside us, and cleanup was extra fun with the boat keeled over 15 degrees.
