Arrival at Tristan

The MV Lance arrived at Tristan about 6:00am on Thursday 14th July 2022 and passengers came ashore at 10.30am. They were all very happy to be on dry land after nine days at sea! There was, however, no offloading, as the sea conditions were not good. The ship therefore went to the lee of the Island.

Passengers were: Islanders: Anita Repetto, Dean Repetto, Randall Repetto; Ken & Judy Green. Non-islanders: Stephen Townsend & Fiona Kilpatrick (Co-Administrators); Clinton, Roxanne, Joshua & Logan de Bod (Factory Manager and family).

Departure from Cape Town

The MV Lance departed Cape Town at about 8:00pm on Monday 4th July 2022.
