Location: Offshore Cape Town, South Africa

(Based on the childrens story by Dr. Seuss in honor of our first day at sea)

Congratulations!
Today is our day,
We’re off to great places! Were off and away!

We have fuel in our ship
We have confidence in our crews
We can steer ourselves
Any direction we choose.
Were on our own. And we (kinda) know what we know.
And BEN is the guy wholl decide where to go.

Well look up and down lines. Look em over with care.
About some we will say, I dont think that goes there.
With our ship full of fuel and our crews full of confidence,
We are too smart to leave without navigational guidance

And once the radar is up and ready No one will frown
In that case of course,
Well head straight out of Cape Town.

It is opener aqui.
In the vast open sea

Out there things can happen
In the great big sea
To people as happy
And eager as we.

And when things start to happen, Don’t worry. Dont stew.
Just go right along.
Well start learning it all too.

OH!
THE PLACES WE WILL GO!

Well be on our way up
Well be seeing great sights!
Well join all the sailors
Who soar through the nights!

We wont fall asleep, because well be on watch.
Well pass the whole ocean and soon well take off.
Wherever we sail, well be the best of the best.
Wherever we go we will top all the rest.

Except when we dont

Because, sometimes we wont.
Well get mixed up, of course
As we already know.
Well get mixed up
With many strange fish as we go.
So be sure when we step.
Step with care and great tact
And remember that LIfes A Great Balancing Act. J
ust never forget we are anxious and allured.
And never mix up our port with our starboard.

And will we succeed?
Yes! Yes we will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed)

MATES, WELL CROSS THE SEA

So…
Be it St.Helena or Dominica or Antigua
Or Fernando de Naronha
We’re off to Great Places!
Today is our day!
Argo is waiting
So…let’s get on our way!

*Our original departure date is a bit delayed and we are currently anchored outside Cape Town, however, the excitement and enthusiasm of being out on the ocean is still alive among the crew!*
