but there are worse problems - like how can we afford to eat and drink in the manner to which we have become accustomed once we are back in Scotland?


A full time 9 to 5 job. May I mention supply teaching at Oban High School perchance!!

You could start as soon as you return home rather than cruising the West Coast of Scotland until mid October.

Oh and work through until the end of June 2008. Perish the thought!!

Or you could send Kathy out to work or become an Internet Millionaire!!

Well Done bigparty;

So you could have been on t'other side - but - would still need to come back.

BTW - How many of the ARC boats sailed back? Are they still there, or did they come back on the deck of a mother ship?

You would need a fast tri so you could sit on the front edge of the weather system.

One of the guys in the office who did the ARC 2006 and returned to work last week, brought his yacht back on a ship. He said approx 60% of the yachts come back that way. There were approx 35 ARC 06 yachts on that transport ship in May.

When we we out in La Gomera seeing Nick and Kathy in February this year, there was a 60ft Yacht there that did the ARC 2000 and it was lifted onto a ship for the return journay.

Congratulations Nick,Kathy and Fairwwinds (or possibly in reverse order?)
So pleased to hear you made it with nothing worse then mild discomfort,though I had't realised that Spanish flats could move at 20 knots,must be horrid if yiu've got a hangover! Lots of love and enjoy the fiesta
Mum :P :P :P [img][/img]
