Crew Eye: An unexpected visitor in the Atlantic

ADVERTISEMENT

The crew of M/Y Vixit had a rare visitor onboard while transiting the Atlantic Ocean in October.

Stew/Deckhand Saaskia England captured a photo of an owl who temporarily lighted on the windshield wiper at the helm station.

After time in Barcelona, Gibraltar and Madeira, the yacht was headed toward Rybovich in West Palm Beach, Florida, and was at 26°28’N and 035°37’W when the bird stopped by.

The yacht was “nearly in the middle of the Atlantic,” Capt. Craig Turnbull wrote by WhatsApp.
