Warm welcome on Robinson Island

Published by


On Monday we arrived after a fast passage on Robinson Crusoe Island. We were all ill, because of the bad swell.
Half way the autopilot stopped working. That was quite frustrating because we have had enough energy from the wind generators and solar panels to run the pilot. Unfortunatelly the rudder was going very hard on a certain course and helming became quite a hard job.
So after that, the warm welcome of the Swiss Jost Otto Schnyder, who lives on the island, was like Xmas! He is a very interesting person and great coordinator: – Yesterday we met the key persons on the island to coordinate our activities.
Today we went to the first cave of Robinson (Selkirk) and climbed Cerro Alta. Then we collected 4 big bags of garbage in the surounding of the cave. It was Salina’s first active clean up and by this ocasion she made already 5 steps by her own!
More soon… and hopefully with pictures (the line is very week).
