Wow that's spooky! Its cold and dry here, the exact opposite! Temp last night here in Somerset was -11 Celsius so best you don't complain about the rain, just leave the filler cap off once deck is salt free and fill the tanks in a jiffy.

We arrived here safely at 10.15 local time this morning after a non eventful night sail which totalled 101 miles It has been quite gusty today so apart from a lunchtime visit ashore to clear in ( and a quick drink!! ) we have been on the boat. Weird to think its Christmas in a few days, Its very hot and humid (but showery), not many decs around here but a large boat near us has a 3 tier coloured light triangle (tree) rigged up on his mizzen mast, very strange.

Nice spot innit ? We've had an e card from Jim and Ann who are on a dark blue Westerly calledd IMPRESSIONIST. Thay are currently in Clark's Court Bay Grenada. You may well come across them. Not to be confused with John and Ann on a dark blue Vancouver 36 called MOONLIGHT. They are somewhere near you and you may well see them. They are all lovely people. Have a cracking Christmas. Still jealous. Keith and Welly

Also, catamaran Catacaos(Graham, Lorraine & Lucas) are coming south from BVI to Saba yesterday so they will probably get down your way soon. Say Hi if you see them.

Merry Christmas to you both. Perhaps you can fulfil a dream - have a swim on Christmas Day.
In Blighty at the moment at Michelle and Vern's, we all send you best wishes. Champagne at 08.00 tomorrow and we'll think of you.

Hi everybody sorry to hear you are all suffering cold weather in the UK whilst we have to put up with 80+ C
Thought you might like a couple of pics to show you how hard it is

Safely in Barbados
17/12/10

We are safely anchored in Carlisle Bay after a crossing of 15 days,4hrs and 2,094 miles. After the drama of clearing in at the commercial port we eventually settled at anchor at 1300 local (GMT -4) we jumped in for our first swim and then had a celebratory drink, The champagne was opened at 9.00 this morning with a bucks fizz whilst on our final approach. Both of us are shattered and need a good rest but tomorrow its off to the shops for fresh food and to sort out our phones as we have no credit left and can`t top up from here for some reason so will get local sim card. Off for a rest now, more news soon

Fantastic ! Well done. It's worth it isn't it ? Nearest internet cafe is on the left just before you get to the bridge in Bridgetown. The pinacolada in The Boatyard is so cold it will make your head hurt when you sip it !. Best night out is Oistins Fish Fair on Friday evening. You can get a bus from the central bus station and a taxi back. Great music. Enjoy Barbados. It's brilliant. Keep the blog updated with what you get up to while you are there. We will keep you updated with the snow situation in Porchy ! Keith and Welly

Well done to both - what an achievement. Have ten minutes in the sun and think of us with five inches of snow.

Congratulations to you both for your transatlantic travels. We are so envious back here. Have a lovely warm Christmas. Phil and Tom.
