Location: St. Tropez
Argo finished its last big passage, heading into St. Tropez in the very early morning as my watch team and I lowered the sails and set anchor. We were glad to grab some shut-eye before exploring St. Tropez. The first and only stop as a group was St. Tropez’s citadel, which housed a maritime museum and shed some light on the French and, more specifically, this city’s connection to the seas. Within the museum walls was a room dedicated to sailing legend Irving Johnson, playing his famous film ‘Around Cape Horn.’ They even have the original charts from that voyage. After finishing the museum, we explored the city while looking to grab some lunch and browse the shops. Soon we will be arriving in Cannes for the final part of this great trip.
