Day 99 - Live from the Grand Baie Yacht Club

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Well we have arrived - Tina, Nigel, Claire and John!!¬† The flight was good, it’s a long way here and we could say we feel we’ve rowed it at the moment……….but unlike Guy and Andrew we have lagers in our hands and are starting to feel quite chilled!¬† It has absolutely chucked it down since John and I arrived this lunchtime but we now sit at the Yacht club watching a flat calm see feeling the suns efforts on our backs - it’s warm and humid.

It’s quite a poignant site seeing Boats Nos 3, 5 and 13 bobbing around on the shoreline and really strange since we last saw them in Australia.

We believe the boys have slowed down a bit today due to a change in the wind conditions but all is well on board and they are really looking forward to the end.

Advanced welcoming party out.
