Title: Southern Princess Day 15 12z 14:04.554N 60:56.949W

At 12:13.25 UTC on December 11th, 2007 we crossed the finish line in a blinding rain storm, a reefed genoa and mainsails and 35-30 knots of wind. 34th over the line out of 240 yachts.

All safe and sound and wet through. This is the Caribbean, no sun, just rain rain rain!

Met at the dock by a welcome committee, rum punch, care package, lots of fruit and three cans of Heineken.

Thanks for all the encouraging emails and I will start updating the regular blog site later on.

We start in the World ARC on January 23rd, 2008 so I guess this or a similar web site will be running.

Love to all

John, Irene & Justin signing off for this leg.
