Pete’s Birthday Sail
Friday 15th June 2007 to Sunday 17th June
Friday 15th June I set off from Prague with some really great company to celebrate
Destination - Anzio: 41:26.440N 12:37.580E
about 25 Nm from Lady Drakes current home at Porto Turistico di Roma.
– Jaya and super cool crewman Andy
you later I am sunbathing – Dana
Surfer Dude - Ashley
Salsa - Rob
high-speed (and highly illegal) race through Prague to make our plane, we
arrive to find it delayed by 45 minutes – if you are reading our blog and
work in Czech Law Enforcement then we are just joking about the illegal bit J
Hmmmm, 18:17, Plenty of
time for an 18:30 flight, I cannot think what the fuss was about.
Actually we caught the
flight thanks to Ashley’s Nigel Mansell driving techniques through the
city of Prague to avoid an accident while Dana was practicing
her negotiation skills on the phone to Czech Airlines and Jaya was holding up
the check in desk looking at the time ticking away. Great team
work!!! And OK, we will leave the office earlier next time J
our arrival on board with a little dancing and champagne – Yacht comes
equipped with Dance floor
out of Port Turistica - Perfect sailing weather... but have you got your sea
a little queezy?
sail to Africa!!
crew, back on terra firma in Anzio
demanding day on the water, some seafood and wine!
dip in the morning
great looking Lady!
up! Sort of…
– push me to shore for some ice cream! (You think we are joking)
– too late - Wipe out!
acts – Look no hands
back to Anzio
– the only survivor!
a gin and tonic Robert?
finally, some fan mail:
Dear Captain Pete,
Thank you so much for an
awesome experience. Even though I struggled to keep a smile on my face for a
while, I really enjoyed our sailing weekend very much. You and your Lady Drake
deserve three cheers from the crew for making our adventure to Anzio an unforgettable trip! J
Wishing you a fantastic
summer of smooth sailing J
Your cabin girl Dana!
And to those who endured
my turn a calm day into rough weather sailing techniques,
Thanks for the really
great company, I had a fantastic time.
I hope we can all meet
for some more sailing later in the year.
