Pachamama is often like a kindergarden. Children from other boats likes drawing new solutions on Pachamama. One family invited us for environmental lessons on their sailboat.
Last Thursday we have had a presentation in the bar of the boatyard in Prickly Bay. There was a mixture of sailors and locals joining the presentation. At the end some people supported us by buying postcards. It was a pity that we did not have any TOPtoTOP-T-shirts left.
We got a very good feedback. All understood the TOPtoTOP message that everybody has to ACT NOW. In the following discussion we were able to give them some exemples how they can start giving something back to nature.
Mister Glyn Evans from Spice Island Marine Services sponsored the hauling of Pachamama and our stay in his boatyard. It is much easier for Richard and his team from Turbulence Sails to work on the rigging when the boat is not moving.
Les Nilsen from Budget Marine Grenada sponsored the antifouling paint and will give other material to improve Pachamama for a special price.
We hope to be in the water again next week, so that we can start sailing towards schools and projects in the Virgin Islands.
