Oh, the parties!!!

Well, it's been a few days since we've posted any entries in this blog. Hopefully, our faithful bloggers know that Brown Sugar arrived safely as planned. They had a spectacular arrival into Honolulu and were heartily cheered into Ala Wai Marina by the crowd assembled at Hawaii Yacht Club--a true heroes' welcome.

Then the parties started.

When BS arrived in Honolulu, a mere 16 days after they started, they were still in the first half of the arriving boats. That left them with the responsibility of greeting their comrades who were still out there fighting the good fight. In addition, the first of the yacht club parties was the evening of their arrival, leaving BS's crew time to clean up and nap for an hour or so. They've been real troopers through the parties...clearly displaying the fortitude and determination that got them through this race with their aloha spirit in tact. They seem like they really had fun!

Tonight we'll attend the Awards Dinner and proudly proclaim that " We're number six, We're number six". Until next time...
The crew will be posting some closing comments soon, watch during the coming week for their final Transpac 2007 wrap-up.
