Equator Crossing

Team AkzoNobel’s equator crossing today saw three of our under-30 sailors, Brad Farrand, Martine Grael and Emily Nagel, make the transformation from to “Pollywogs” (first time equator crossers) to “Shellbacks”.

Their new status didn’t come easy however and required an appearance in King Neptune’s court to atone for their sins with some arbitrary justice dished out by King Neptune (Chris Nicholson) and his wife “Codfish” (Nicolai Sehested).

As you can see from the photos, Brad is now sporting a colourful new hairstyle while Martine and Emily will probably not be able to face noodles, spaghetti or fish any time soon!
