The first yacht of the season arrived on 13th October 2016, but unluckily the rough sea conditions prevented the crew from landing. The yacht is 'Nomade Des Mers', is French and had four French crew aboard. The following day was good news for the yachters, as they were able to land and spend the day exploring the settlement and Potato Patches, shown around by compatriot Léo Duval who is the new CTBTO Station Manager. The yacht departed mid afternoon on Saturday 15th on calm seas en-route to Cape Town.
