Friends of UHURU caption competition

We are still motoring with no wind and it’s getting vey boring, we’re having to devise more games of amusement.

Well what a great response to the caption competition, kept us all amused for hours. We had the final judging last night over dinner. And the results are as follows:


First overall by one vote only and no family voting:

“Lucy’s new boyfriend regrets accepting Steve’s invitation to crew on a secluded leg of the trip” Piers Cadman

"Anyone else wanna try touching big red?!" Karen Murphy

However, there was a LATE entry from my mother, which we all agreed deserved an Honorary mention.
