Location: Pulau Payar, Malaysia

Well, today, we finally sailed away from the city. It feels all too long ago since I last jumped into the ocean, so arriving at Pulau Payar was a treat. This morning, we all woke up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready to leave the skyscrapers of Penang behind. We steamed out of the channel and found a slight wind to sail by. It was only 35 nm to Payar, but we made the most of it with OCB class on the way and our final advanced open water knowledge review being summed up for our final advanced dive. After a great dinner of unusual burgers, we took our OCE quiz and finished the day off with MTE. We also set up a bridled mooring, a first for Argo. What a day!
