Location: Cooks Bay, Moorea, French Polynesia

Waking up in the marina to a gorgeous sunrise coming over the horizon was a great start to the second day. As the hot sun blazed down on us, we all looked forward to the start of the 80-day adventure. After the first breakfast aboard Argo, the crew took off on a four-hour sail over to Moorea. We raised most of the sails and basked in the Tahitian sun (working on our tans). Upon arrival in the bay, we had our swim test followed by ocean showers. The crew bonded over the stories of pasta pie. The day ended with a nice teriyaki dinner under the stars. Starting anchor watches tonight.
