Martinique Farewell Party

Spirits were high as the Blue Planet Odyssey and Pacific Odyssey fleets assembled Saturday evening for the Skippers Briefing.

Yvonne Tritz, Deputy Mayor of Marin and President of the Tourist Board attended the briefing and entered the first signature in the Blue Planet Odyssey log book that each crew was given. Their log books will be signed in each port as they sail around the world.

Afterward, the Tourist Board of Marin hosted a farewell cocktail for the crews. Lucie Baudin, director of the Tourist Board of Marin, prepared the planteur punch – a tasty rum drink featuring tropical fruit flavors. Local foods were served, including acras (fritters of codfish and other fillings).

Afterward, those who wanted could attend two free concerts of local music. These outdoor concerts were well attended, and drew a large crowd who danced into the night.

The next morning the crews would depart for the San Blas islands.
