Location: Richards Bay, South Africa

After a long and fun school and safari-filled week, we are heading out of Richards Bay and on our way to our next port- East London. As far as the crew goes, we are getting closer and closer after the many struggles we have faced together. It is starting to set in that we pretty much only have two weeks left aboard Argo. It flew by and is only going to go by faster each day. I am more than thankful for the people I met here and just wanted to express my genuine love for my shipmates and the staff. We have formed a family and a bond that will remain with me throughout my life. It is an honor to be skipper one last time for this amazing crew. To all parents (including mine), thank you for sending your child on this. We all have made the most of it and love it.
