Challenge 93 (Fisher&Paykel NZ) - Message from Inmarsat-C Mobile
Blog of Fisher & Paykel Challenger 93, day 12: Hooooooorayyyyy!!!! After 12 days, 16 hours, 6 Minutes and 53 seconds we crossed the finishing line in Rodney Bay! The last day was again very exciting - wind from 5 up to 28 knots, regattasailing at its best and worst in just a few hours. We ruined more sails in one day than during the whole journey before unfortunately. St Lucia greated us with heavy rain and the way to our berth was not as deep as supposed so we got stuck but finally we made it :-). Mood of the happy crew increased with the welcome drinks. It was a really great and unforgettable journey across the Atlantic and thanks to Kino, Simbi, Fabio and Sergio everything went really, really well (with exception of the unfortunate sails which didn't survive). YOU ARE THE GREATEST!!! The happy and still good looking crew of Fisher & Paykel now goes for much needed further drinks and wishes a save journey to all the other boats which are still en route. Cheerioooooo!
