Once around. Yahoo.

So how was singlehanding the last leg? More solo or are you looking for crew (no I'm not applying, got to much boat work to do to get mine ready).

Fantastic! a Huge milestone. We've been looking for you. I lost the pool to see who got to buy you the first drink. But, hey, take this brew to wash the salt out of your mouth, and no one'll be the wiser. Cheers.
