Immediately when we came to Salvagem Grande island was we asked if we could take a passenger onboard Mon Ami to Lanzarote. The guardians and the biologists are shipped to and from Salvagem by a Portuguese navy ship. Normally they stay for two weeks on the island but now they where informed that the navy ship will not come for another week. One of the biologists, Maria had to return to Cambridge UK and where not able to stay on the island for 3 weeks.
Maria was very nice and friendly to have onboard for the 135 Nm night sailing to Graciosa island north of Lanzarote. Unfortunately was she a bit sea sick despite the medical plaster she had behind her ear. Still she managed to tell us all about the Caraggas birds and her work in Cambridge and on Salvagem Grande.
