Mark,

Great achievement, particularly in such a dodgy boat.
You're a legend.

Awesome Mark! Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Been following you and enjoying your posts.

Looking forward to hear how you lost the stay but kept the rig. That's amazing.

Congrats, Mark! Damned impressive!

We had a betting pool going on your arrival. Looks like boatman61 won the prize--a Killer Bee at Sunshines beach bar on Nevis. If for some reason he can't show up in person, maybe he'll delegate you to sip it for him.

Mark, a heartfelt well done. You must have done some fancy dancing on the foredeck to save the mast when you lost your head stay. Congratulations.
