Jellyfish

We had a minor first aid situation on board yesterday. After arriving in Capo San Vito we all went swimming and jumping of the front and the back of the boat. As we came out Tyrii was stung by a jellyfish (even though we hadn’t seen any as we went in). We cleaned and disinfected his leg and he was very brave! This morning all seems fine again with his leg !
Today we are heading to the Egadi Islands. We are planning to stop at Isola Favignana before our crossing to Sardinia.

  1. Have compassion for Tyrrii

    In order to deactivate the nematocysts, pour vinegar on the area stung for at least 30 seconds, and then, if possible, soak the area for as much as 30 minutes in vinegar. The acidity of vinegar should neutralize some or all of the unfired nematocysts, specifically neutralizing some of the proteins in the cocktail they shoot into you (though not all types of jelly stings use the same cocktail, so vinegar won’t always work).

    JUst if it happens again read this :

    • Dank je Hendrik! We hebben een goede ship’s medical guide en daar stond het ook in van azijn dus dat hebben we direct gedaan en daarna ontsmettings alcohol… Tyrii terug helemaal ok!

      • Ik wet wel dat jullie goed georganiseerd, en voorbereid zijn, en super intilligent zijn om problemen op te lossen. Ik voel me goed als ik jullie kan helpen.
        Als het bijkomende Wifi- of Internet- connecties kost, laat maar weten, dan doe ik het niet meer.
        Maar jullie weten dat ik jullie op de golf (voet) volg.

        Super groetjes aan de hele bemanning.
        Ciao
