Happy Christmas, Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays, Joyeux Noel, Glædelig Jul, Nollaig Shona Dhuit

Happy Christmas, Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays, Joyeux Noel, Glædelig Jul,  Nollaig Shona Dhuit to all of our sailing guests, friends and family all over the world. 

The day could not be better for sailing; I’m sitting here looking at around 15 – 17 knots, blue sky and white puffy clouds.  A perfect day to anchor in English or Falmouth Harbours and head into Nelson’s Dockyard for the Christmas Day Dockyard party.  Just enough cloud to keep you cool.  Enjoy the champagne, steel bands and live entertainment.  
There have been some terrific events leading up to this day; we had the arrival of Santa in Jolly Harbour just last week.  When asked by a small child in the crowd if it was the “real” Father Christmas, I replied, ‘of course’.  Not convinced by my answer he commented “but why is he so early?”.  Hmmmm…. why indeed?!  Quick as a flash, I replied ‘because he has so many countries to visit on his sleigh (or in our case a helicopter) that he has to start somewhere in order to fit every chimney in’.

As the sun set, we were treated to an impromptu carol concert outside of Epicurean supermarket (where else?!); two Antiguan groups of singers, accompanied by some of the best drummers I’ve heard.  True talent right there.  
A very special evening in the Marina for visitors and residents alike and a lovely reminder of all the great things about the Season.

However you say it, best wishes to you for the Season.
