The second days race was along the coast to Andrax where the boats stayed overnight and then raced back again on the third day. The evenings entertainment was fancy dress and a cocktail from each boat.
Steph and I also joined the boat for this race though Andy and Steph left the boat in Amdrax and returned to Palma overnight to have the next day off for their wedding anniversary. we also had anther crew member join us another Steph.
Very mixed weather and the start was delayed but once the boats got underway a pretty good race though I didn’t see much of it as I was downstairs staying to sort the crews fancy dress!!
We finally tied up on the pontoon at 17.50. Definite party atmosphere ashore and everyone had taken the fancy dress quite seriously.
Moy Toad - a motley bunch
Killer toad - rum based as in Killer B’s from the Caribbean. I drank at the end of the evening having forgotten how much rum I’d put in there- it wasn’t a good idea!!
The return race on Thursday 3rd started slightly later 9few hangovers!!) and involved a start in the bay outside Andrax port before heading back to Palma. A good sight with everyone’s spinnakers up and a pleasant race back getting back onto the RCNP pontoon in Palma around 15.40. No organised entertainment that night -a quiet evening as certainly needed by D and J- think the young men went out to enjoy the delights of Palma.
