Shaun’s (Connery) blog on Starling!

Posted in : Starling

A perfect Caribbean morning – a real Mary Poppins day promising to be perfect in every way. All up early ahead of schedule for Johnny’s breakfast and anticipation of an exciting day sailing from Mayreau to Mustique. Navigators Susie and Dave promised to turn 20nm direct motoring into 40nm of exhilarating close hauled sailing despite their shpecialism in Rumshack to Rumshack and rock to rock navigation. Our increasingly efficient tacking earned praise from our skipper for teamwork (teamwork makes the dream work) and after 11 tacks (no faffage) and lots of shnaschs was much appreciated! Alex’s Quesadillas made at an angle of 30 degrees were the treat of the day and really appreciated by all🏆

Jeffrey 🕷 our cockpit spider was much in evidence and all were concerned that his ability to avoid feet and buckets of water might desert him.

Various challenges were invented to pass the time from goat sounds 🤪to boat names 🤓 that amused us like Love Knots, Feline Good, 🐾Cattitude🐈 Fat Susan, Why Knots, Kids Inheritance 🍾 Going on an Adventure before Dementia.

Suddenly we were there! We relaxed with a swim and chill in Basil’s bar awaiting a shpectactular shunshet. Sean failed to respond to the American voiced radio call but Starling’s skipper was alert and brought us back for Johnny’s rum punch 🆘 and Wendy and Caitlin’s delicious lasagne 🏅🥇
