I had an incredible time living on Argo this past summer, sailing the Coconut Run. I met great friends, some students and some staff, that have made lasting impacts on me. But it's important to remember that nothing is perfect, and neither is Sea|mester. Our summer was a challenging one, with many hurdles to overcome, but that was part of the journey I signed up for. If you are intrinsically motivated and desire the most out of your experience, this program has fruitful offerings. I became a divemaster, navmaster, competent crew member, and true adventurer. Have reasonable expectations about this impressive journey and channel optimism in the hard times. Any opportunity to sail, study, and dive is precious--a worthwhile investment for life.
