TNS454 13/12/15 It’s a lazy Sunday afternoon between Barracuda Ridge and the Demerara Abyssal Plain. The sun is shining bright in a mostly cloudless sky. The thermometer has crossed 30 degrees. The wind has eased since yesterday and we’ve spent the last few hours bobbing along at 4 or 5 knots. But it’s been 12 days and 1800 miles […]

TNS454 12/12/15 Good news! We are not about to sink. This is because we have rats aboard. Rat droppings have been seen in the Upper Mess. They are small and black and our suspicion is that the rats are living in the bags of currants, because that is what they are excreting! One of the cheeky little varmints […]

TNS454 10/12/15 Day 36 Ahoy all, it is now time for Aft Port’s all important recollections of the day: The morning began with a nearing shortage of hash browns and eggs! Only now after 3 weeks of our Transatlantic crossing have food items started to diminish. Despite this, culinary perfection has still been achieved thanks to our eggcellent […]

TNS454 08/12/15 Welcome to Forward Port’s factual information section where we bring you up to-date with the latest news from our voyage across the Atlantic. This morning, at around 12;10 am, 2nd mate and officer on watch Ben (the factual dream killer) attempted to remove a flying fish from the bridge and ended up holding the tail while the […]

TNS454 07/12/15 A very Happy Birthday to David today from all of us on Tenacious.  I believe so far his day has been quite eventful.  It would be rude to quote his age and I hope I look as young as he does when I catch up with him. I can say that it was a pretty […]

TNS454 06/12/15 There is not too much to report other than Eric the Egret has now made his departure. Let’s hope he finds his way home. I believe he left on a full stomach. Captain held a meeting for us all this morning mainly outlining one or two changes with regard to ‘watches’. We were all in agreement. He […]

TNS454 05/12/15 We are now on day 30 on this epic journey and under sail. Dependant on wind conditions we may have to resort to motoring in the coming days; the wind has been dropping but still blows in the right direction. The awaited Quiz event took place last night. Close call and the winning team was Rough Tooted […]

TNS454 04/12/15 It’s Friday and we are now on the Dog Watch 4-6 p.m.  Richard’s best team are adamant that we will reach the 3,000 milestone during this late afternoon. Also, I forgot to mention yesterday that we had a new arrival on board i.e. Eric the Egret.  It would seem that he has made himself at home […]

TNS454 03/12/15  I can report that, overnight,  Dr James has taken up a new profession i.e. turning his hand to changing the style of his current footwear as the Captain had reprimanded him for wearing sandals whilst on his watch. I can report that he now has the appropriate footwear. It is also young Sami’s 25th Birthday today and, […]

TNS454 01/12/15 “Hey Over here! Hey I’m over here! Look at me!” shouted the Minke whale as he jumped out of the water trying to catch the attention of the people aboard the sailing ship. “Look how high I can jump!” he called leaping ever higher from the water to show the sailing ships crew his white underbelly. I […]

TNS454 30/11/15 Today seems to be a day for those with a head for heights and in some cases those that don’t. A stream of people have been seen going up and down both masts seeking to “touch the button”. Some of those ascending do so for noble causes such as, Sophie, ably supported by Clare. Who is […]
