Hurricane season is nearly through and we, along with most other crews in our marina, are making final preparations to sail on.

Brian and I will look back fondly on the days spent at Le Phare Bleu. This has been our favorite marina experience by far, thanks to the great community of friends we’ve made here.

Before parting ways, we spent one last afternoon together fêting with an epic boat crawl. A great time was had swimming, floating, or paddling from boat to boat for snacks, drinks, competitive trivia games, and general revelry. With ten boats participating, we formed teams and shared hosting duties. Paired up with our dock neighbors, Beth and Mike of s/v MickBeth, our team name was MickTune.

10 boats, 20 adults, 8 kids, 2 dogs, 1 accordion, and a whole mess of food, booze, and water toys. That’s all you need for a fabulously fun farewell party in Grenada.

We had a safety boat in case of emergency. Mike rowed, while Reinhart played sea shanties on the accordion. The Canadian, German, and American flags represent the home countries of the participating boats.
