Force 9 catering
As the waves went up to 30 and 40 feet and the wind reached official 9 beaufort we all had our problems to struggle with - some rather successfully than others. And now imagine the cooks in the galley dealing with pots and plates and hot soup while nobody can stand upright anymore without holding tight somewhere. It really requires a special mental and physical constitution to deal with that.
The destiny of a ship lives in the galley, as Arved Fuchs said. So the very special thanks to Gill, Noreen and Andreas came from our hearts.
