Location: The Canaries

The day has finally arrived- we are officially underway to Dominica! Today after breakfast, we practiced more CPR and First Aid on some pretty creepy dummies. Everyone now feels comfortable with chest compressions and rescue breaths should any problems arise while we are at sea. We then prepared the boat for this long passage, taking extra care to make sure everything on Argo is in perfect shape before pulling out of Tenerife. We said our goodbyes to land and made final phone calls before heading out. With hot dogs in our hands and a beautiful pink sunset behind us, we are sailing into this exciting adventure. That’s right, SAILING. We got some good wind today, and we can only hope we get even more in the next three weeks.

Love to all our family and friends,
S/Y Argo FOM 2016 Crew
