Unfortunately we have experienced a small setback on our journey, but the expedition continues nonetheless! Sadly, two of our crew members had to leave the expedition due to delays we’ve experienced. Alex and Edmund are therefore no longer part of the Saga crew. We understand their situation, and we are grateful for their contributions. They have been a part of this project from the start, and although we are saddened by their departure, we must finish what we started. Thanks!
We will continue rowing the world with 4 crew members.
Currently we are in talks with Leven Brown to determine, when we should continue our expedition, so that we have the weather on our side. You will be pleased to hear, that we have donated 200 kilograms of food to refugee children from Senegal in western Africa. This would not be possible without the authorities from Las Palmas, with whom we have established a good connection with.
The mood onboard the Saga craft is really great, despite the departure of our dear friends. Locals in Las Palmas visit us throughout the day constantly, and even more so after we were featured on national television. We have registered well over thousands of visits here in Las Palmas!
In addition, we can proudly announce, that we are ready to receive donations from the Scandinavian region through Mobile Pay, and furthermore from the rest of the world through bank transfer!

Oh, and here are some pictures from Portual -> Las Palmas! (Believe us, it’s not an easy job to get everyone on the pictures, even in a small boat, especially at the same time! Schedules are quite different for each member, and those who are awake; take picture of those of are awake!)
