Tuesday 9 March, Day 54

To change a bit from landscape and instrument pictures, let's show a glimpse of what life is sometimes onboard! Last Saturday night, Alex organized another quiz night, with lots of difficult questions to answer, and a funny physical challenge in between two question sessions. The goal was to form teams of 2 people, and while keeping our feet behind a line on the ground, try to put a napkin ring on the ground as far away from the line as possible, without any part of our body ever touching the ground past the line! John and I decided to have a go. While some other teams were already trying some moves, we trained and came up with the following move, which put us momentarily in first position:

But soon we were overthrown:

Then another team pushed the limits even further:

And finally a team seemed to be unbeatable, thanks to a perfect combination of a tall and heavy guy with a small and light girl:

But John and I decided to take the challenge and beat them, which we did!

Another team tried to reproduce this winning move, but they couldn't get back behind the line, so we won!
