Right before our 3 o’clock coffee break, we heard the alarm fire alarm, our weekly drill started. It was simulated fire on board. One of our crew where missing, but lucky our fire team found our always smiling Richardson. Unfortunately he was hurt, so the hospital team had to bring a stretcher for him. It is heavy to carry even a always smiling person, so now the guys had to show their mussels.

When the abandon ship alarm sounded, all crew had to go to their position outside on deck 5.

When the drill was over, we observed land.

March 12th we left Buenos Aires, sailing towards Lisbon. Since we needed more bunker, we had to sail via Las Palmas, where we came today, Friday night, March 26th at approximately at 18:00 – after sailing a distance of 4697,5 nautical miles, leaving Buenos Aires.

At this moment we are leaving Las Palmas, continuing our route to Lisbon. Days are running, and we have a lot of work to do before you can come on board April 1st.

We have had a beautiful crossing so far, and it is almost amazing how nice the sea can be for so many days, be sure, we like that, and we hope it’ll continue for the coming days.

Tomorrow we will have the famous Fram Olympic Games Final.
