Update from St Helena Island

Hi All,
I managed to catch a quick lunch with Governor Mark Capes, who arrived back this morning and is extremely pleased with the way the event is going.
Kuheli finished at 12:01:13, I believe giving JML Rotary Scout the Mono-hull Rally honours. Kuheli ripped their main sail badly and sailed lots of the race with three reefs.
So it looks like the leader board is complete with:
  • Line Honours: Banjo
  • Mono-Hull Racing Handicap: Reaction
  • Mono-Hull Rally Handicap: JML Rotary Scout
  • Multi-Hull Rally Handicap: Compromise
It is going to be a long couple of days ahead, with anticipated arrival times of:
  • Ielool: 6th Jan @ 3am
  • Maggie: 6th Jan @ 2pm
  • Patches: 6th Jan @ 6pm
  • TicoTico: 6th Jan @ 7pm
  • Black Cat: 7th Jan @ early hours
  • Silver Cloud: 7th Jan morning
  • Ocean Cloud: 7th Jan evening
This will have the fleet home in time for the Governor’s Reception on Tuesday evening and the prize giving on Wednesday evening.
Spook was on the RMS St Helena supervising the cradle erection and dealing with yachties who arrived in flip flops to assemble huge chunks of steel. They could not understand why they were not allowed on the working deck and were sent home to put on proper shoes. What is the scouts’ motto? – ‘Be prepared’!!!
