After 16 days and 424 miles on Barracuda I am finally allowed to write the blog.

My four big learnings / realisations from this amazing trip were:

1. Sharks don't bite ...... well not usually.

2. The Bahamas is an unbelievably cool place to sail. Round every corner is a new and exciting adventure. The turquoise water, the wildlife, the people, the food (especially the conch) and of course the anchor holding! It is a great big pile of sand after all!

3. I have a very understanding and wonderful wife who let me go play in the sun while she looked after things at home in the rain. Thank you Sarah! XXX

4. Graham and Kate are not just accomplished transatlantic sailors but set a great example by always taking time to do the right thing, be it putting safety first, taking time to clear plastic off the beach, helping those impacted by the hurricanes or taking the initiative to round up fellow sailors for sundowners on the beach!

Thank you Graham & Kate for all your hospitality. I had a blast! Safe travels and look forward to seeing you in Blighty soon.
