Journal on board. We are about to reach the SAR area. So far we have had a good sea.
During the trip we had the opportunity to finish acclimating. Almost no crew member gets dizzy. These days we have also dedicated ourselves to finishing the set-up of the boats and we have even been able to do some exercise.
The medical team offered us a CPR workshop and mobilization of the polytraumatic patient. We also become familiar with the hospital material, so that we are all ready to respond quickly.
It is also curious, as the fact of not having internet more than a couple of hours a day, has helped us to connect more with each other. We spent many times chatting and joking. It seems that everyone does their best to understand each other and, despite the language barrier, we had a great time playing jokes with each other. It turns out that Coke always has an ace up his sleeve and the other night he did a magic show that provoked the laughter of half the crew.
This group of men and women who have left behind their homes and loved ones to carry out the commitment of not letting anyone die in the Mediterranean, is now our family and we are all going to take care of each other.
«Nobody is left behind».
Today we have already arranged the surveillance turns for the next days. These will be on the bridge, where we will keep a constant observation. We do not know what the next days will bring us … What we do know is that we are together, we are strong and we are prepared.
