We woke this morning to blue skies and open seas as we were still underway to Bequia. It was nice to have another night at sea with the waves rocking Argo as we slept. After lunch we had double science classes with and OCB coral reef lecture followed by an OCE debate on aquaculture versus fisheries. As classes came to an end we noticed Argo had stopped pitching from side to side which we assumed meant we were ready to anchor. Sure enough when we walked up on deck we were greeted by the island of Bequia. Before anchoring, however, we tacked around the bay for a little bit more to practice handling the sails. Once anchored we assumed our normal custom of giving Argo a loving scrub and thorough BA which was followed by an awesome dinner of chili. After dinner we headed into shore for our first steps on Bequia and a night out.
