The first of the crew departed today - Philip and Mark set off after a farewell lunch so that they will be home in time for some work before Christmas and then some time off over the Christmas and New Year break. Colin leaves in a couple of days with Andy and Chris remaining on board for a few more days to have Christmas in the sun.
There was some doubt about Philip and Mark's flight due to snow in the UK causing many flights to be cancelled.
It does not seem possible that it was 5 weeks ago when the crew all started to arrive in Las Palmas ... and how far we have all come in that time ... and remained friends too!
