The first three weeks on board

Date: 11th November 2023
Position: Roscoff, Harbour
Etmal: 0
Total: 463nm
Ship: Regina Maris

Three weeks ago we all came on board of the Regina Maris. We were quite nervous to finally meet each other in person. And now, three weeks later, almost everything is normal. At least for me. But I would lie if I say my life hasn’t changed. We have scheduled times to eat, to sleep and even to clean.

Where did the food go?

In three weeks, a lot of food was eaten. We already did an inventory one week ago. But no one cared to write down what was taken out. Because we chose the hard way and spread the food everywhere in the benches of the messroom, we needed volunteers to look through it. I was one of them and had the lovely work to correct the list of one of our benches. Also, our dry storage had to be updated. It sounds easier than it is. But if you are a small person, you can just crawl into the shelf. Just be careful that you manage to get out again!

Chaos on deck

When I made my way out of the dry storage, it looked like a hurricane swept over the deck. We were the hurricane. On the last three Sundays, we had missed cleaning the galley. So it was our job to clean it today. However, we can‘t just put things on the kitchen table like we’re used to at home. We put everything we had in the galley on deck. The deck was total chaos and it felt like you needed to go through a labyrinth. You can’t imagine how many things have a place in our tiny galley. I think we have more stuff in there than in my kitchen at home…

Free shore leave

All the good things are three. We have been on board for three weeks, so we had our third city to explore during free shore leave. In the afternoon, we had the chance to go on shore and explore the city of Roscoff. We were all bewildered my the fact that our cook has wanted to go to Roscoff all his life.

But now we know. Roscoff is a beautiful harbor city with charm. My group and I had some difficulties in the beginning because we just wanted to go to a grocery store. But we ended up in the shopping mile of Roscoff.

Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to visit all the beautiful small stores. So we just could browsed through the windows and made plans for the next holidays. I’m sorry for my family, but the next holiday destination is Roscoff.
