Captain Saleh gives thanks and pays tribute to his crew at the end of the first leg
I thank God for our safe arrival in India. This has been a challenging but extremely rewarding voyage and I am so proud of how the entire crew worked together to make this leg of the journey a success. We are from many nationalities, but we worked as one–with one heart and one mind–to accomplish this goal. Of course we still have a long way to go before we reach our final destination, but the crew has learned a great deal about sailing this unique ship and about living and working together, so I am even more confident than before that, God willing, we shall arrive safely in Singapore.
