Cruise to the end of the world is over
Aggiornamento: 22 ott
We did not teleport Angelique II from the Falklands to Cannes, we simply arrived in Piriapolis, Uruguay, passing from the duvet to shorts and flip-flops. Here it is early autumn but the beach is still crowded and walking along the promenade we have been hit by the fragrances of tanning and sunscreens that have made my wife's spirits rise to a thousand. Yes, it's time to give us a few days of rest and tranquility, our Cruise at the end of the world ended.
Puerto Piriapolis was an important stop for many editions of the Whitbread Round the World Race (today the Ocean Race) a round the world regatta. The Organizers left here a big travel lift and we hope the marina will be able to lift Angelique II ashore.
It is now almost two years that we are in the water and our hulls need some care especially after the "kiss in Antarctica".
It has been a long year. To me the strongest experience of my life.
The places we visit, the people we met will have a permanent space not only in my memories but especially in my heart.
