Merry ChristmasMerry Christmas

We wish all our friends and families a Merry Christmas!

We thank all of you who listened patiently to our boat stories. 2019 will definitively be a better year.

All of you, whose crewing and travel plans were trashed due to ‘electrical difficulties’ onboard Lunara, we thank you for your understanding.

We thank everyone who shared our enthusiasm for french champagne and back to back serial parties onboard 🙂

We had good times in 2018 – nevertheless.

Visited our favorite Christmas Market in Paris. We had help from our local tour guide Remy 🙂

At first we tried a Raclette Baguette – hmmmm! But then stayed focussed as you can see!

Got up at 5:50. Readied the boat and left her at 8:00  🙁

Olivier is the owner of the well known stainless steel fabricator PRODINOX in La Grande Motte. He was so nice to drive us to the TGV station in Montpellier.

Traveling in France is completely different. We are going quietly 300km per hour, enjoy good WiFi (free) and have decent food onboard, all for a very reasonable price.

Deck repairs are through the critical phase. We are rain and water proof again :-). The epoxy primer is on!

Now comes the fairing compound to make it all level and smooth.

This morning we had a beautiful sunrise (again) and Lunara looked good without the green hospital gown from the prior days.
