MOOD : FUNNY
Last night was the official end to the ARC. We had a big party, and a lot of prize-giving. And Champagne won !
We got one award, and I believe we deserved it. Now you wonder , don't you. But I will not tell you.....yet.
I will continue confusing you whilst switching between past and present.
Hope you can follow !
Of course we have been eating , eating, eating. And that every day. I know folk , you do the same, but do you ever get in a couple of days Chicken Curry, Pasta e' Pesto, Spaghetti alla Pomodoro, Tiramisu, Banana flambe with ice-cream, ice-cream with caramelised brown sugar and frozen raspberries,, a glass of red wine for lunch, and a gin & tonic as a sundowner.
Want to know more ?
And all of it of course in wavy and windy conditions.
It is however striking that you rarely see or meet anybody. And when you do see a fellow sailor you get excited even if you don't know who it is, where he came from and where he is heading to.
You might call him over the radio, but surprisingly, many sailors switch their's off during such a trip.
No idea why !
But they are funny characters, these sailors !!
" Model Parties".
Here is our model getting tanned,
There is so much else to tell, but that I leave for another day. We have been doing more than 400 miles over the last 2.5 days. And tomorrow we will have reached half point of our journey.
Now thank's for that , so we can celebrate with some good food, wine, a glass of champagne, and of course a cigar.
A sailor's life can be tough !
