Reports of vessels visiting Tristan da Cunha, and voyages to and from the island.

MFV Edinburgh's Mid-Winter Voyage

Report from Cynthia Green

Arrival at Tristan

The MFV Edinburgh arrived at Tristan about 9pm on Friday 21st June 2019 and went to the lee of Inaccessible as sea conditions prevented passengers landing. On Saturday morning she moved to Trypot, on Tristan's south-east coast, again, in the lee. The Police and Fisheries RIB's went down to the ship in the lee on Sunday morning to collect the passengers, who later were brought ashore at Calshot Harbour after eleven nights at sea. On Monday 24th June the vessel is still in the lee, as the sea conditions are not suitable for offloading.

Yacht Pelagic Australis revisits Tristan

Report from Dawn Repetto and photo by Kelly Green

Yacht Pelagic Australis called at Tristan on the morning of 16th May 2019 on her way from the Falkland Islands. She had eleven people onboard, and the weather was nice enough for them all to come ashore for a look around. After clearing immigration they explored the island and then enjoyed coffee and toasties in the Tourism Centre. Everyone boarded early afternoon and the yacht set sail for Cape Town.

The Pelagic Australis has been a regular visitor to Tristan in recent years.
