Arrived in Barbados!



After 23 days at sea and 2600 nautical miles today we landed in Barbados, at the Shallow Draught Harbour, where the people from Cornell and friends from other crews welcomed us.

Amazingly, we did not feel the sea (actually the land) sickness that we were expecting after such a long time off ground, with our equilibrium system set to cope with the continuous rolling.

An agent from the Cornell organization helped us to complete the immigration formalities which can be quite complex and long.

The harbour where we are moored is next to a commercial port, in the periphery of the capital Bridgetown. After having settled down we walked to downtown, and reached the Careenage basin, where other boats from this rally are moored right in the middle of the city. We decided not to be moved there, but rather stay in this odd but clean and quite place. We found out that we can reach the town by collective taxis.





Terra, terra!
