There are a few sore heads round this morning after last night's ARC prize-giving bash. Prizes were awarded for the fastest yachts in each division (sadly not Maunie but we came in 113th overall, in spite of the big time penalty for all our motoring).
We did win the prize for the best log photo sent from the sea - Fergus' brilliant shot of Rich diving off the stern of Maunie when we were becalmed - so were delighted with that.
Today will see the beginning of the exodus of boats heading elsewhere for Christmas, Lots of the family boats are heading to Bequia but we plan to stay in Saint Lucia - at anchor probably - since we haven't yet explored the rest of the coast.We need to restock with food so are hoping that the supermarkets won't be as madly crowded as they are at home in the days leading up to Christmas. Rich flies home tomorrow so we'll have a last meal out, with Peter and Heidi from Stormvogel, tonight
Seasonal greetings from the Maunie Crew!
