A wet and windy chrissie this year, hang on, about the same as last year, except I am on the flip side (northern hempishire.) A christmas greeting from an amazing russian man we meet in Plymouth. He sailed his converted steal international dragon boat from Russia across the Arctic Circle to the Uk for the start of the jester Challenge, across the northern Atlantic, he got dismasted ended up finishing the race after 40 days under jury rig! Finally got to america for the first time in his life then sailed back to russia……he drew his own charts, spiced his own rigging, had a heart of pure gold. I could imagine him on the old clipper ships that sailed around the horn and back. Thankyou Alexia.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
