Crew member on GBR8248 Incisor
After a 600 miles of exciting racing round the Caribbean, we crossed the line at half past 8 last night and hit the bar in style. The last leg of the race - a beat from Redonda back home - was amazing because we were racing home with 10 other boats neck and neck. With our brilliant team tactics from Derek and Mike we chose the best route and finished first out of the pack after rounding the mark in 6th place. Mariella gave us a real good run for our money and even did a moonie at us at one point! The whole of yesterday was great sailing and we had a bit of everything from reaching, running, fetching, beating and being becalmed.
We had a great crew and it really makes all the difference, we may not have won but we didn't have any breakages and we partied the hardest at the 24 hour bar!
Next stop is the Heineken Regatta in St. Marrten for more fun sailing and lots of rum!
