Parade of Sail to Rodney Bay

Our round the world adventure with World ARC finished with the parade of sail from Marigot Bay up to Rodney Bay St Lucia. As the smallest Yacht Timshel lead the fleet with Galen (our fantastic yellow shirt from World Cruising Club) on board. With the wind gusting up to 25 knots it was difficult keeping the boats in line and flags and sails flying, but all arrived safely to berth at Rodney Bay marina where it all started so many miles ago. The fantastic day finished with dinner and presentations at the Royal St Lucia hotel. Steve and I have been privileged to be part of two World ARC families. We first started with the 2017 rally, spent a year in Australia, then joined the 2018 rally as it left Darwin for the Indian Ocean. It was a great wrench to part from our first rally friends, but we received a great welcome and were soon part of the new group. It’s the camaraderie, friendship and help you receive from the whole group that really matters.
