Next Port – Tristan Da Cunha (Hopefully!)

The Class Afloat crew and families are all crossing their fingers that the Gulden Leeuw will be able to successfully visit their next port this coming weekend. Weather/sea conditions must be perfect for anchorage.

Located in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Tristan de Cunha is an archipelago of small islands considered THE MOST REMOTE PLACE IN THE WORLD!

Surrounded by rocky terrain and choppy waters, the island is only accessible by boat with its closest neighbors, South Africa and South America, 1,700 and 2,000 miles away respectively.

There are approx 275 residents living there.  7 surnames00_tristan 2 tristan-da-cunha Tristan-da-cunha_erwin_vermeulen tristan2rristan-da-cunha-map
