Hey heyheyyyyyyyy there Johnny Boy !!!!
OK that was super FUNWOW !!!!
Final day was unbelievable !!!
Quite possibly the single greatest day of competitive sailing that I have ever witnessed –
Turned out to be the best day …. I am attaching a few photos for you to use right now if you need to but I have an awful lot to go through to make more selections – this will have to be later on tonight so hope these will do for now –
The UB40 (Yes!!!!) and Mya concert was also fabulous and the crowd was massive … they estimated over 10,000 (so I was told) – all great … but yet another power failure held everything up and the awards portion took wayyyyyyy too long to complete –
Anyway here is the news item for you and the photos below – One of the Canadian boats, the guys from Winnipeg, took the first place honours in one of the classes – I have photos opt them at the ceremony as well – to come later –
Cheers for now – chat later – I will be back in studio one week from today …
Oh yeah – they did confirm for me that I was in fact the ONLY Canadian Media person here – still baffles me –
Best for now – JG
Hey hey man –
I will be uploading onto my FB page shortly –
CYOB’s fearless, if slightly eccentric reporter in the Cariibbean paradise
Lots of pics … tried to cut them down as there seems to be too many but so much colour and so much fun … and tension … there were some intense moments out there …
In the meantime … LOOOK OUT !!!!! A FLOTILLA OF FLAMINGOS AND PARROTS !!!!!! – Cheers – JG
