It’s the first day of STW27 and the new crew are busy with training, unpacking and getting used to life on board. Although it’s been very windy today the forecast looks more favourable tomorrow and our plan is to leave Punta Del Este around mid-morning. We found out today that Tam our very own Engineer managed to complete 3 arduous days of running in the desert, we are all so immensely proud of her and will raise a toast to her this evening. Well done Tam from us all.
