They do in the Falklands..... esp if it plays out thus...
San Aspiring fishing
down by South Georgia
Normal crew change is Stanley (F.I.) by air to Punta Arenas/Santiago/Auk.... simples...
At present all flights to South America
have ceased..only link with outside world is RAF airbridge via Cabo Verde Islands to Brize Norton UK.
Fishing boat owner despatches another fishing boat with relief crew from NZ round the Horn to FI..
Ship arrives to do crew change... 3 assorted crew get in brawl... argue the toss with the beak....locked up... ships sails
back to NZ without them.
So now one way or the other they are facing 6 months in Stanley... either in or out of jail... waiting for the next relief ship....
Maybe not earth shattering news... more a human interest story....
