Location: Underway to the Azores

Well, today’s the first full day of the passage. I’ll keep this short but sweet for everyone at home, just dying to know what it’s like for us. For starters, Today was a crazy day for all of us. I got to say. There was a thick fog this morning till about three o’clock and very strong waves. Everyone is trying so hard not to fall over on the deck, but so far, nobody has fallen overboard yet. Watch teams crushed it today. Everyone is getting a taste of what it’s like to be on the water. I feel like everyone threw up today at least once, but hey, what are you gonna do. However, everyone is very excited despite the seasickness and lack of sleep. Finally, we were all able to hold each other’s hands during squeeze tonight for the first time. I got to say it was really weird at first, but in the end, it was pretty magical. Then after that, all of us took a picture on our first full day of passage which I’m sure you’ll treasure forever.
