Location: Bonifacio, Corisca

There is no better way to start a Monday other than with a hearty breakfast of Oatmeal. After breakfast was cleaned up, everyone headed to the salon for the oceanography quiz, followed by a class. Once class finished some of the shipmates stayed onboard to do some homework, while others went ashore to do some laundry. Lunch was a spectacular affair, with tasty grilled cheese and tomato soup on offer to cure the hungry bellies.

After lunch we were all free to go to shore and see the town. With the day being so hot, it came as no surprise when Simon and Kate suggested that we go and have a look at the cliffs marking the entrance into Bonifacio. We took a boat full of people over to the cliffs, with a few going up to the Citadel to explore, and a couple staying onboard to escape the afternoon heat. As the afternoon drew to a close, it was back aboard Argo for showers and dinner prep.

After a tasty dinner of shepard’s pie, a sailing class and a quick trip to the ice-cream shop for some dessert, we all settled down to some last minute touches on our lit reviews and a good night’s sleep.
