Emily, Ann & I crossed the finish line last night at around 8.15 local time in a crossing time of 21 days which brings to a close this blog and this part of our adventure. The last 5 weeks have been amazing. The preparations & parties in Las Palmas, the crossing itself and now some more parties with the climax being the final prize giving and party on Saturday night. The reason for the whole affair: 'to cross the Atlantic on our own boat' has been accomplished again. We could have done it without the organisation of World Cruising Club but I think it wouldn't have been half the fun. Full credit must go to them as organisers for making such a great event happen.
After this we head to Martinique for Christmas where we will leave Summerwinds in a marina and head back home to plan the next part of our adventure. (Oh and work)
