Atlantic Odyssey: Latest arrivals

Day 24 – 10 December 2014

The crew of Por Dos absolutely wanted to reach Martinique before the farewell party, although they had to stop 7 days in Tenerife, and they succeeded: after the fastest crossing of the fleet so far, they docked on pontoon 5 less than one hour before the beginning of the party!

Hapa Na Sasa missed the party as they arrived in the middle of the night. They moored on dock 5 the next morning, and were welcomed by Jimmy Cornell and fellow participants.

Catamaran Vida reached Le Marin in the middle of the afternoon, and were acclaimed and applauded by a large number of enthusiastic Atlantic Odyssey sailors. Fresh beers were thrown to the crew before they could even step on the pontoon!

The two young crew boys were very excited and immediately went for a run on the dock.

As the three children from Hapa Na Sasa were also present, we took this opportunity to award each of them the Young Argonaut diploma in recognition of this great achievement.

Although Florentine reached dock 5 in the dark at 18:30, the crowd of Atlantic Odyssey sailors was still present: Fred (Déhooké) took his dinghy to help them tie the bow to the buoy, while others took the stern lines on the dock. The crew also received a moving welcome, with applause, hugging and kissing.
