Lanzarote to Grenada
RORC Transatlantic Race : Phaedo3 does it again in Grenada
samedi 3 décembre 2016 –
Phaedo3 skipper, Brian Thompson, spoke on arrival in Camper & Nicholsons Port Louis Marina.
"Friday evening and we’ve just arrived into Grenada at the finish of the RORC Transatlantic Race from Lanzarote. We’ve sprayed ourselves with champagne, given Pablo (Pete Cumming) a birthday cake and now we are going to settle down for some late dinner in St George’s. It’s great to be here ; the tree frogs are singing out, the reggae music is blasting out and we are very happy to be here. We had a great last day in the race with 15-17 knot tradewinds ; quite gentle, clear skies and then as we approached Grenada, a beautiful crescent moon and Venus setting in the west in front of us. We arrived three or four hours after sunset and it was a very, very good arrival. There were lots of people to welcome us on the dock.
"Thanks a lot to RORC and to the Calero family in Lanzarote, and to the team at Camper & Nicholsons here in Grenada. We are looking forward to welcoming Maserati in later today, and then we are off up to Antigua. Next stop : the RORC Caribbean 600. It’s been a great race."
