Last stop St. Peter Port

01 August 2016
Last stop St Peter Port.
A 6 am start will allow us a last sail in light winds to St Peter Port, where we hand over to a new crew who will bring her home. It's full of a stink boat rally, but they leave in the afternoon. Exhilaration and lassitude compete in our breasts. The regattas have been all we could have hoped for, some of the passage-making less so. Marcita has been wonderful to us, and we've tried to look after her. This will probably be our last French trip in her, as plans for next year may involve taking Caressa instead. We shall see. A l'eau, c'est l'heure.
