Barbados success


The 300 NM trip across from Antigua saw F8/9 which Juno coped with well. Some of the team did suffer a bit and all were grateful to arrive and clear immigration at Port St Charles.
We then encountered the port authority bridge lifting arrangements which proved frustrating to say the least. A real pity as everyone else was so helpful and the locals very friendly.
The first and second inshore races saw us take line honours and we won class one in the Round Barbados Race, which resulted in each team member receiving a bottle of rather good Rum plus another 3 litres between the 7 of us for instant drinking, possibly a picture of the hospitality is starting to emerge. It might have helped that we had the sponsors MountGay on board for the race but even without that influence the hospitality was awesome.
Back to the UK now to sort out the Milebuilding courses in Scotland. These mile builders might include a distillery visit but won’t feature the consumption rate achieved in the Barbadian sunshine
