Northern Child Transatlantic Blog – Rendezvous

Yesterday afternoon Northern Child rendezvoused with a Spanish Medical Ship, under the instructions of Falmouth Coastguard, to transfer crew member Philippe into their care.

Philippe had been suffering from acute seasickness which had become more problematic, and though Northern Child is due in to Ponta Delgada in the next few days, it was decided that as the Medical Ship was in the vicinity he would be more comfortable with proper medical attention and a fast voyage to hospital for a check up.

The crew will miss Philippe on the remainder of their voyage, and all  of us wish him a very speedy recovery, and a safe onward journey.
