The last two boats that left with the ARC+ fleet from Mindelo have now arrived in Grenada: Griselda, a Hanse 370, skippered by Nicola Stamp with Gerry Baker and Jacob Asquith-Fox, crossed the finish line around 4am local time on Tuesday 6th December, and Disa, Darrol and Kathy Martin’s Amel Mango followed before sunrise.
