13 Dec Crew change
13 December 2016
Today a big part of the crew went on leave. Captain Maarten, first mate Elskarin, cook Richard and sailors Jenny and Magnus are celebrating Christmas and New year’s at home. Tonight, they will probably go out in Santa Maria as they are flying out tomorrow. We, the new crew, have the advantage not to have to celebrate Christmas and New year’s Eve in cold and dark Netherlands but under the Cape Verdean sun. So everybody is happy 😉
We sailed the ship from Santa Maria to Palmeira and welcomed part of our guests on board. Not everyone, because a few people were stranded in Lisbon. Due to foggy conditions their flight was delayed so they are expected tonight.
