We enjoyed NYE drinks on Dock G, the American dock, so designated because of the different power voltage; we are on the European dock. It was organised by three American women, who also organise sailing wives’ lunches. NYE dinner was at a Thai restaurant, upstairs at the marina. The lobster bisque, the satays, the curries and the gluten free spring rolls got a big thumbs up. The bread and butter pudding wasn’t all that Thai, but it was good too. We managed to stay up for the fireworks to welcome in 2018. May it be a happy one for all.
We were sorry as always to see the LLLs (the Lovely Lehmans and Leslies) leave us here, flying off to Charlotte North Carolina and then LA and home. We have sailed together on Trilogy in Turkey, in Spain and now the Caribbean, and it has always been great, energetic and entertaining fun.
We are looking forward to Steve Ring’s arrival in a few days. Steve has recently joined Garth and John as a Trilogy owner, and he is undertaking a marathon sail as he will be on the boat from now till Trilogy crosses the Atlantic again to return to the Mediterranean.
