This morning we were woken up with a knock on the hull. Jacques and Sophia from the S/Y Extrapôlis came over paddling their dinghy to ask for help rescuing their ladder that fell overboard last night.
An operation skillfull diver Lars volunteered immediately and took out his enormous “diving baby bottle” for the operation. Successful retrieval was complemented with the return of their drifting dinghy to add for their morning disgrace. As a reward we were offered a French bottle of red wine, which we as gentlemen and in true seaman spirit declined – with Bob’s approval.
