Wrapping it up in SXM (gonzo edition)

SXM Kelly Brown Wins 2

Mar 22, 2017

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 –

Black And WhiteTurned 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

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 …

Floating FlamingosIn the meantime … LOOOK OUT !!!!! A FLOTILLA OF FLAMINGOS AND PARROTS !!!!!! – Cheers – JG
