TRISTAN DA CUNHA NEWS



Tristan da Cunha Island, Settlement is on the right.

We have not heard back from Administrator Sean Burns yet NAUTICAL LOG expects he is just a little busy!  The weather there has delayed catching penguins for cleaning but it is reported the work continues and they are being fed freshly caught fish and after cleaning have a swimming pool to enjoy.  Under very difficult conditions and limited resources the Islanders seem to be doing an excellent job.

There is not much news of the crew of MS Oliva but Marlon De Oca's Mom wrote to NAUTICAL LOG from Manatal, Bulacan, Philippines.  She was very happy to see the photo of her son safe and well thanks to the people of Tristan da Cunha.  Her comment is published after the Post 'MS OLIVA', so Marlon if you read this please know your family are happy you are safe.  Mom's always worry a lot so we were glad to be able to give her some peace of mind.

In the near future we shall give a fuller account if we get to use the 'Latest News' from the Tristan Group.

Good Watch.

Please remember the seafarers held captive by pirates off Somalia - let us work with India to free them.
