14th December 2013, the day after our arrival in St Lucia and first time to reflect on an awesome adventure!
Approaching the island on EH01 on Friday morning was a sensation to remember forever; a strong breeze on the beam as we sailed fast through our waypoint, spectacular views of St Lucia, Gareth’s music blasting from the cockpit speakers and everyone fired up for the finish after an adventurous 19 days at sea. We rounded up and beat in to the line in spectacular style, the crew reacting quickly to Andy’s orders (for once!)……the rest involves many many bottles of beer…..MAINLY Piton.
Loved sailing with you Andy and all the way from Gib with you Gareth. You people are deadly serious when it matters and mad as hatters when it doesn’t…that for me is a perfect sailing adventure.
