12:00N 61:45W�� A good day.With the arrival of the repair kit for the sump pump from Guadeloupe I have managed to get all three faults sorted during the course of the day. We now have a new stand by radio.

In the evening we attended the Regatta presentation party in Pt Louis which was an enjoyable affair. Chris Doyle author of the definitive cruising guides for the Caribbean � the essential handbook for every yachtsman cruising the area, was one of the prize winners.
