Peter and Diana, Canadian friends we have not seen since last year, invited us to race with them in the Pirate's Day Regatta to Beachcomber Island.. Although there was no wind, the pirates still made it and successfully took over with gusto.
Kiwi friends from Adamite, Lynn and Graham, and Conor from s/v Kiwi enjoyed the rowdy day.
Suzi, Lindsay, and Lucy found it hard to smile, but they managed to join in the fun.
A great opportunity to meet new friends and connect with those we have missed for a while.
Here we are, anchored off of the island of Malolo, the most southern island in the Mamanucas, and deeply involved in the serious fun of the Musket Cove Regatta. There must be over 50 yachts here and everyone is in the party mood! EEEHAAA! The Friday Night Opening shindig inspired us all to dance way into the night and kicked us into high gear for a week of continuing fun. It is already Tuesday and I have had no time to update the blog until now! Hopefully these few pictures will at least let you know we can still rise to the occasion and do our share of partying, enjoying a re-connection with lots of people we have not seen for a while and meeting many great new, interesting adventurers. Life is good!
