Financial Crisis and Cessna are in

5 11 2011

Great to welcome Marco and Paul, and Conrad and Hugo to Cape Town today, just before darting back to the UK for a break with the family.

Superb effort from Marco to bring an early generation Class 40 into 3rd place, goes to prove that all these boats are competitive and have potential. Will miss Marcos entertaining email/blog musings and observations, hope he keeps it up whilst ashore.

BSL is in great shape, every item has been reviewed, a wee bit of servicing done this week, pretty much ready to go. Ross flew back to NZL this morning, and I have a night flight tonight. We need these 2 weeks to help the re-energising process, will be back for a weeks work of packing for the next leg. Shame we cannot teletransport wives, children, dogs and cats to Cape Town for these two weeks as it remains after a week a stunning and welcoming place – not better than home of course, but wonderful.
