Location: underway

296 hours after leaving our friends in Cape Verde, the crew of the Argo sighted land. At 22:47, a “land-ho” was sounded by the ever-attentive bow watch, setting off a celebration that would last until daybreak. The winner of the estimation for the time of first sight of land was the expert mathematician Rachel, who calculated almost to the second when we would see the beautiful sight of a Martinique lighthouse. We were welcomed to the Caribbean Sea by a pod of dolphins who played off the bow multiple times today. Tomorrow, we will make landfall.
