Title: Merry Christmas!

We have now been on the boat since 3. of December.
The boat has been well taken care of while being in Rodney Bay Marina, St. Lucia.
When we arrived everything looked fine and it was good to be back in Ko-Ko escaping from the cold back home.
We had beein invited to be ARC finish line boat this year together with 3 other boats and the 7th of December at 07.00 the finish line opened.
We where on watch.
The first boat, Vaquita, arrived at 10.30 local time (14.30 UTC) and they had used 12 days and 4 hours.
The next boat, Beranice, arrived 20 hours later so it was not a lot to do on the first watch.
Our second watch from wednesday to thursday was completely different.
It lasted for 24 hours and we had 36 boats coming in. It was not possible to sleep for one minute.
After having welcomed our friends in Andante from the ARC crossing we took over Kristin and Sigve as crew and left for Marigot Bay.
Here we met some norwegian friends, we had a big party party and barbecued a hole pig.
I think we had some rum-punches too (many) :-)
The next morning we headed for Bequia, stayed here for the night before making our way down to Port Louis Marina in Grenada.
That last sailing was superb - couldn`t be better.
Kristin and Sigve went home for Christmas and we are enjoying this nice Marina.
Yesterday we started a Padi diving course and today we have been diving in a wonderful Sculpture park in Dragon Bay/Moliniere Point.

We want to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Hope to see many of you during 2013.

All the best from
Ellen and Haakon
