The Emergency Marmalade Run
15 December 2017 | Carlisle Bay - Antigua
Yesterday morning it was my turn to run The OCC SSB net.
lots of vessels called including Minie B way down south in Trinidad and Badger's Sett far away in Bonaire.
We also spoke to Simon on Brisa who planned to set sail for Guadeloupe on Friday (today) but they had no Marmalade!
So we went ashore in Falmouth and bought some.
We then set sail to Carlilse Bay to surprise them and calibrate our new wind transducer.
They were delighted to see us and the marmalade. We were greeted with beer and tea.
They set off at dawn this morning before the "Christmas Winds" set in over the weekend.
The Watermaker is behaving and we now have full tanks again.
