Geo Searcher's March-April 2020 Voyage

Report from Cynthia Green

Arrival at Tristan

The MFV Geo Searcher arrived at Tristan at about 8pm on Friday 20th March 2020 and passengers came ashore safely during the morning of Saturday 21st March. Incoming passengers (all resident islanders) then entered an isolation period as an additional precaution against the possibility that they may spread coronavirus. All appeared well on arrival and the passage itself was over the expected seven day incubation period, which provides Tristan da Cunha with perhaps a unique built-in additional quarantine period. Nevertheless, the Tristan Government is taking the threat of coronavirus very seriously.

Departure from Cape Town

The MFV Geo Searcher departed Cape Town on the evening of Friday 13th March 2020.

Passengers on board are: Islanders Sandra & Deanna Rogers, Gerald Repetto, Ricky Swain, Clive, Vera & Herbert Glass, Eugene, Kirsty, Aiden & Ella Repetto.
