Prize giving night was quite a night for Manali. She was one of 2 Australian yachts to receive prizes. Kondili was 1oth on handicap in her division and good old Manali snuck up the rankings on handicap to take out 5th in Division G. We were particularly thrilled with her final overall placing of 30 in the cruising fleet of 162 boats. Manali received a 50 pound nautical book voucher for her efforts which Pete and Jus collected on her behalf. Go Manali.
Another surprise came by way of one of 5 awards handed out for blogs. The blogmeister won a bottle of rum for the most relaxing blog. En route she was writing restaurant reviews instead of stories about broken D shackles, wind angles and spinnaker poles. Justine was so surprised she remained glued to the chair staring at Jean Pierre’s egg and bacon pie featured on the large screen at the ceremony, and Pete had to run up on stage to collect the rum. Manali has one up on the Frogs now because our French friends Maurice and Olivier have been chastising us for calling it a pie not a Quiche Lorraine. They were more excited than we were when Manali’s prize was announced. Merci Maurice for the loud cheering.
