Bonjour Hans,

Je vais profiter de vous rencontrer et de visiter votre bateau.

Mais vous devez venir ici à La Réunion, tout près de Rodrigues.

Félicitations, C'est Un beau voyage.

Mai abeille, à bientôt.

Hi Hans and Isabelle.

Congratulations for your fast crossing.

Sure it's important to KEEP THE LASHINGS TIGHT.

What are your plan for the next years? We plan to pass the Panama canal at the beginning of the next year. Present time we are in La Palma Canaries.
