Last night we attended a reception at the Yacht club hosted by Berthon. Very fancy yacht club. Guard on the gate, huge swimming pool and a flourescent sign that is visible 5 miles away.
Today was the opening ceremony for the ARC with a parade of flags, speeches, and then "Pedro's Dinghy Race" - rubber dinghies, water fights, flour bombs etc. We watched from a safe distance. Very childish!
Tomorrow morning is our safety inspection. We have got all the required kit out and await our inspection with baited breath.
