Fire, Fire, Fire?

Tonight, we had a special event. For some unknown reason our fire alarm went on. It was around 01:00 in the morning. I was on watch, steering, dancing to the music in my over-dimensional Oil-gear, looking like the Michelin Man. Shortly before I was done with my turn the fire alarm went on. We were all really confused what had happened and a bit frightened.

Everyone gathered at the muster station and the officers looked for the problem. All our procedures went smooth, and it turned out that it was only a false alarm.

Arrival in Bermuda

Today was one of the days we always look forward to. The day of arrival in a new country. But still the day started like every other day at sea. Breakfast at eight, individual- and german Class and afterwards the happy thirty minutes. Business as usual.

The waves were calm and there wasn’t too much wind. One of the things we are already missing is the warm temperatures, since we left Cuba, the weather became colder and we had to unpack our oil-gear. At around 17:00 (Reggie time) a pilot came on board and delegated us into the harbor of Saint George.

Around dinner the immigration came to our boat and we all checked in. Saint George looks like an aesthetic little town, the rooftops were all white and the building all have different colors. We are all looking forward to our time here.

Some of our insiders

As some of you might already know, we have a lot of insiders on our nice little boat and today the day has arrived that I am going tell you about some of them. There are the basics like “High tunes” and “turn up”. We mostly use them in situations when we are all gathered, like at the time when we were in Cherbourg and the french television was filming us (the scene where we said it, was unfortunately cut out of the report).

Then there is the “Pura Vida Bruder/Schwester” saying. Originally it is from Costa Rica, but we took it and changed its meaning a little bit. We use it as a placeholder or when we are in exhausting situations and want to express that we are annoyed by the current situation but are still able to make fun of it.

Last but not least there is the “eheheh” laugh, it is hard to describe this one, just look “Peter Griffin family guy laugh” up on youtube. This is used in the most random situations.


Merit: Alles Gute zum Geburtstag, Papa! Hab‘ Dich lieb!❤

Brian: Alles Gute zum Geburtstag, Opa! Ich hoffe, Du hattest einen schönen Tag und hattest einen schönen Wein! Ich rufe dann noch morgen an! Habe Dich und Ami lieb (und alle Kelleys natürlich auch)! Bussi!

Lenya: Guten Flug Loulou :))) Ich hoffe, Du hattest supertolle zwei Monate in Thailand und kommst Zuhause (im Kalten) an. Hier in Bermuda ist es jetzt auch schon ziemlich kalt und auf den Watches laufen wir wieder nur in Ölzeug herum. Ich vermisse Dich ganz doll und freue mich schon, Dich wieder zu sehen. Hab‘ Dich ganz doll lieb :))

Juno: Liebe Grüsse an dich Plastikpapa, vermisse Dich sehr!
