The crew really look forward to receiving mail in port. It is very exciting. Having something from family and friends that we can touch and hold on to when we’re on the other side of the world brings a smile to our faces. There is a lot of time at sea to think, and we’re often thinking of the people we left behind to take on this great adventure. Getting something in the mail from you lets us know you’re thinking of us too. And unlike an email or a phone call, a letter is something we can take to sea with us again. The next port where the crew can receive mail is Rarotonga, Cook Islands, coming up in late August. Right now is the time to send your letters and packages to ensure they arrive on time.
The second mail port of World Voyage 5 will be in Rarotonga. Please allow four weeks for regular mail to reach Rarotonga. All envelopes and packages should be outlined in heavy green waterproof marker and addressed like this:
