- Voyage Crew arrival day. This is always a hectic time as our new guest crew
arrive, with bags piling up on the main deck and people jamming the stairs as they
endeavour to get gear down below and into their cabins. Terri is doing 'signing on'
as each person fills out and sign Ship's Articles. Barry the 2nd Mate is issuing safety
harnesses at the same time and different crew are taking everyone around the ship is small
groups for an introductory tour. Controlled pandemonium.
A major new arrival is our new skipper - Captain Colin Faulkner who is taking over from Tony Davies here. Colin has commanded Soren several years ago on the Australian coast and is her relief skipper across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and Panama Canal. (Tony has earned a well deserved break and is having a family Christmas with Fleur in the UK before going home to NZ).
Our new voyage crew spend the rest of the afternoon with safety talks and instruction, some taking the opportunity to climb aloft for the first time while the ship is still in port. There is a buzz of excitement among the permanent crew and our new arrivals - Soren Larsen is shortly to set off for an ocean passage - across the Atlantic, bound for the Caribbean!!!
