Location: Underway to the Azores
First day of passage complete! We started the day off right with pancakes in the rain and set out to start our passage prep. After passage prep, we set sail heading straight into our first Atlantic crossing. You could feel the excitement in the air as we all began the adventure of a lifetime. The dolphins we saw right after we set out gave everyone hope and a feeling of euphoria. Later after some time getting accustomed to the churning and rocking of the boat a dense fog came over Argo and its crew, making it an exciting start to the watch team rotation. Although many of us are still attempting to get over seasickness the journey ahead is still long and tough! We will see it through and come out a different person to when we went in.
