Will be returning to Casamara on the 8th November. Thankfully Cindy (of Wilkinson Sails) and Philip are coming out to help with a small number of pre ARC jobs and also help me sail Casamara down to the ARC start in Las Palmas. I also have to find the laundry that we left in the marina at then end of July. Then the Crew will start to arrive.
Julian – (Head Chef) has menu plans already sorted and will buy and prepare food for the trip. Iain – (watch leader) has been practicing with his sextant ready for the trip. Dickie – (watch leader) in charge of victuals and most importantly sun downers. Paul Ross (watch leader) ARC veteran and spinnaker expert. Tim – entertainment officer (music and DVD’s) !
So that just leaves me SP as a very relaxed Skipper with a great crew.
Looking forward to seeing old friends down in LP
