Celtic Star was third in the poetry competition on
the SSB net. We are a small group of boats about the same size that chat
daily and compare positions and weather.
Our poem is called "ARC Radio
Net" - the names of the different boats in our group are all featured, though
Desert Eagle has been modified.
At midday UTC the airwaves come alive,
On ARC 4
Charlie listening watch there is a friendly vibe.
We hear Eagles in the
Desert as the Summerwinds blow
and Pacific Pearls are shimmering in the
radio's electronic glow.
Alisara has an Accomplice to talk about 80's
Simane is a regular as the roll-call keeps our wits,

is Gentoo sailing westward all the time,

it's a tricky one to rhyme!
Grace & Hope are the qualities of our
splendid ARC net fleet
and all the boats are happy that in St Lucia we shall
Celtic Star is shining in the heavens and all about,
on listening watch, Celtic Star out."
