The sun is shining at last .
and we watched the fleet set off while we were having a real lazy Sunday morning before wandering over to Elizabeth harbour for lunch

and then the spectacle of the boats returning with tales of success or shredded sails and startline mistakes.

The parties were getting going as we left Elizabeth harbour for Falmouth.

This one had had some sort of coming together and the resultant hole covered with a neat plywood patch and a suitable comment. A shame as she was otherwise immaculate.

But the best party of all might have been here where the local island boats were docked together. The " There I was " stories were being told and the beer was chilling down nicely.

I think the big schooner on the right of the pic is from Carriacou and was finished in 2002 and is a sign that the traditional island boat building skills are still around.
