Naming MargaridaI must give a big "Thank You" to Oliver because he remembered to get a bottle of champagne. Because of all the stress to have things ready, I completely forgot such an important detail. So, with the auto pilot taken us on the heading of 210ยบ, we all went to the front and we named our boat. I made a small speech referring to the name of my mother and my grand daughter. Then we drunk of cup of champagne. By the way, some days later, in Palma, we had to give 3 possible names for the boat when filling the registration documentation. The first was "MARGARIDA". The second was "MAR GARIDA" and the third was "MARGA RIDA".

On Wednesday (June, 9) morning at 8am we were at about 1/3 of our crossing to Mahon, Menorca. It was our first night at sea without seeing land. I was on deck from midnight to 4 am with the lifejacket and the life-line permanently on. Oliver made the following shift from 4am to 8am. During my turn I saw many cruisers and freighters going to (or coming from) Marseille. Apart from this I only saw the stars in the sky. During the next day and night we only saw one ship. In the morning, Iris wake up and we took this film.
