Mary Rose Blog

friends share their time with and on Mary Rose

Rum, Sun and Victory!

Sailing at its best.

After meticulous preparation and strategy meetings in Vienna, the crew arrives from all over the world, London, Newport, San Francisco, and even the remotest locations like Ebensee. Thanks to Geri's personal effort and several trips to Antigua, we find Mary Rose in pristine condition and ready to rock.

Mit einem Hut wird aus einer Frau noch lange keine Dame

Mit einem Hut wird aus einer Frau noch lange keine Dame

Wir nähern uns der Luv-Marke knapp gefolgt von CHRONOS.

Eigentlich haben wir damit gerechnet dass sie, da sie ohnehin nichts mehr gewinnen kann, in Lee vorbeigeht. Weit gefehlt. Um den Gästen schöne Fotos ?!? zu ermöglichen bleibt sie auf Kurs und drängt uns damit einige 100 Meter ab, nachdem sie 2 mal weiter abfällt und uns damit wertvolle Minuten verloren gehen.

Day One, Race Won!

0830 Friday 18th April.

Looking dashing in their new kit, the crew slowly gathers onboard. Shaking off the cobwebs last nights rum punches, anticipation is building and tactics are being discussed. Bonnie is serving up the last coffees as we wonder if anyone succumbed to last nights indulgences and might not show up onboard today. As the meeting time approaches, everyone appears and fears are laid to rest.
