Broken mast sailing ARC across the Atlantic

Finally does the ARC boat Garuda arrive with a broken mast.

They broke the mast not too far from the finish line in a squall with very strong winds and manage to build a temporary rig out of their spinnaker boom.

It took them 21 days to sail across the Atlantic. Well done!

Marigot Bay, St Lucia

Just a few hours sailing south we anchored up in Marigot Bay. A lovely sheltered Bay with nice atmosphere and beautiful hotels.
