Savvy sailors will be impressed to hear that we entered the channel under sail as we were afraid that the net might get caught in our propellor. We also managed to drop the anchor while under sail and Patrice immediately put on his mask to investigate below. Well friends and neighbors, wouldn't you know that all that zigging and zagging must've paid off because that pesky net was gone! Free to start the engine, we wasted no time in zooming into the marina where Shelagh and a surprise--my parents!--were waiting on the dock with balloons and banners and ice-cold champagne! Oh happy day!
I will post a proper update and some photos of our trip sometime in the next few days, but first a celebration is in order and some much needed and well-deserved SLEEP!
