Location: Underway to the Marquesas

Reporting live from 7 degrees South, 103 West, it’s everyone’s favorite skipper, The Man, the Myth, the Legend, Dave Holland. Another beautiful day is underway in the Marquesas, and spirits are high due to the lack of rain and the abundance of sun. Yes, that’s right; up until recently, we seem to have been followed by some pesky rain clouds, causing general discomfort and forcing Argo to become a temporary wet bird sanctuary. But all is back to our normal state of tropical bliss (knock on wood) as we enjoy steady winds from the Southeast pushing towards another beautiful paradise. Life continues as normal for the crew, laboring through classwork and boat work, finding joy in the small things, and living in the moment as we head on into the middle of the great Pacific. Sooner or later, we will be the farthest you can be from land anywhere on this planet, a moment this skipper is looking very much forward to, as I’m sure many of the crew are as well. Fingers crossed for smooth sailing and good times as we travel onward. This is the world’s most charming and cunning skipper signing off. Goodnight and Godspeed.
