The Final Stretch

John
As I type this, it is Saturday evening and we are basically drifting with a 6 knot breeze, doing around 2.2 knots towards Scarborough, the main port of Tobago. Basically, we are heading there, hoping to make port sometime on Monday, to clear into Trinidad and Tobago and take on much needed fuel. We will then motor-sail overnight to Chaguaramas, arriving early on Tuesday morning.

This will be my final posting from the boat as we need to hand it over to the owner on Wednesday morning and get quite a lot of work done during the day. I also need to dismantle my HF radio, which is used for these posts, and pack all our equipment for our flights back to South Africa.

Thank you for those that have taken the time to read my posts and follow the delivery via the Internet. Although the posts have been far and few, I do appreciate those that have taken the time to follow the journey.

Dylan and I will most likely be travelling back home early, leaving Trinidad on Wednesday night. Conrad is heading to Venezuela to do his tourist thing and Juan wants to head up the Caribbean island chain to see what work is available. I wish them both well on their respective journeys and it has been a pleasure having them both on board for the trip.

When I get back to Cape Town I will do a final summery of the delivery and post it to the blog. I wish you all well and thanks for taking the time to read the blog. Regards from Conrad, Juan, Dylan and myself, John.
