....the fuel held out, the squalls finally ceased, the sun came out and we made our way into Bridgetown Harbour, Barbados at approx 13:45 local time. We have cleared Customs, Immigration and Health and on a temporary berth until tom,orrow when we can start work on getting the mast replaced. At the moment we are chasing options to get Phil to St Lucia tomorrow for his flight back to the UK with Ruth, then need to get Nick on his way on the 22nd. No time for any relaxing just yet!!!
We would like to thank everyone who has sent us messages of support and offers of help - it has just been fantastic to know there are so many wonderful people out there. We will sleep tonight - well for a while until the early morning taxi for Phil and then look to start putting things in place to replace the rig.
We will write up a full account of what we believe happened for folks to read - I will endeavour to be as open and honest and non-judgemental as possible....hhmmmm..
For now we are in flight source mode so will update again very soon.
Once again many thanks for the messages - they have been a real help to us getting through the past few days. Thanks to all.
Andrew & Susan
