01 August 2007 | Cariacou
It was a rainy day but no storms in the forecast. Happiness spread through the anchorage. Many folks were carefully tracking things through the night and some had even moved into the mangroves just to ensure a good spot. There was a mega yacht in the anchorage by the name of Champagne Share who provided real time Internet updates over the VHF throughout the evening, which was very nice of the skipper. I stayed on top of the NOAA reports over the HF radio as well.
I felt bad for the tireless cruiser event coordinators. They did such a great job creating fun events for the cruisers and also raised money for the local school lunch program, but the weather kept raining on the parade. Even so, many a cruiser turned up at the various functions for regatta week.
