So finally we saw signs of life.On our port side in bearing 220,we saw
sails!In the SSB/Radionet at 01.15 GMT we learned to know that this was
yacht "Sunshine" from USA.After the radionet we contacted each other on
VHF.They were a family with a 12 year old daughter from Arizona,sailing a
Norwegian 32ft Colin Archer.In our daily radionet there are yachts from
USA,France,UK,New Zealand,Portugal,and ourselves from Sweden.It´s really an
international cruiser family on their way to Marquesas.We do keep our
Swedish style though.
Onboard Tarita we are organized according to Swedish manners.Since nowadays
there´s quotation for female captains(also being the employer),Bertha took
over command as soon as she came to Galapagos.I´m the ships trade union
representative,allways in opposition.Anton is representing the ethic commité
having opinions on everything.Felix is in charge of the equality commité and
works for more influence for teenagers onboard.Carolina is part of the ships
feministic movement and is constantly feeling supressed by her
brothers.Gabriel is the representative for children rights onboard,and is
now concerned about why there´s regulations on candys,computer games,and
Before every decision we have a meeting and votation.2 days ago we met to
discuss wether to change our sailsetting.Today we finally reached an
agreement not to change the sails since the wind changed back again.
Like Winston Churchill said:"Democracy is a bad way to rule,but it´s the
best we have"
