Location: Samut Prakan, Thailand
Samut Prakan, Thailand — Today, the crew woke up for a 0730 breakfast, and then we got right into it. We hauled anchor and motored through the maze of Tapioca barges to clean air, where we raised sails for the first time. With five sails up and making 7.5 knots, the new crew of Argo got their first taste of what life was going to be like for the next 40 days. Our sail was cut a little short while we assisted the Thai Marine Police with an accident at sea. We finally made it up the river at 1800 and had a much-earned dinner. No rest yet; however, anchor watch around the clock here!
