17.12.13 Back in England

Wed 18 Dec 2013 18:38
After we landed in St Lucia life in the marina was one huge social whirl, as the other boats arrived we would all blow our fog horns and cheer and then everyone would call by visiting and exchanging stories of torn sails and broken booms, washed down with gallons of rum. Peter got into the whole rum punch creation with loads of limes and proper cane syrup, really good, he never seemed to make enough.

Official picture of Hebe crossing the line, Andrew is wondering how to Photoshop the other one of our arrival, which unfortunately has managed to get itself onto the front page of the Discovery newsletter….


Back in England now in a daze and wondering where I hid those Christmas presents, did I buy any? I think a turkey is on order. We have 2 weeks home which will go like a flash then back to Hebe in St Lucia on 4 January to prepare for the World Arc start on 11th Jan. James Woods and Alex Fell are joining us, and perhaps Antoine for a lift to Panama…. obviously Dart will still be part of the crew along with Harry and Imo.
Happy Christmas

Love from Janie and Andrew xxx
