Report and photos from Dawn Repetto
On Thursday 24th November 2016 we had a visit from Yacht Roks.  The catamaran yacht had been experiencing some problems and had to call at Tristan for diesel fuel and supplies. She arrived on Monday 21st but weather was not suitable to make a landing until three days later. The three crew members onboard were South African. A 3 month yacht delivery trip has turned into 8 months due to problems experienced with the yacht. Thank fully diesel and supplies were taken on yesterday and one of the island mechanics visited the yacht to assist with a few mechanical problems. The yacht left the same evening bound for Cape Town.
