Nice night shots Ron.
Thank you Kevin. Here is a slightly closer look at the N52 Nordhavn "Dirona"... fantastic boat resting at one of our marinas after her 3,600 nautical mile non-stop journey. We also had a couple of other Nordhavns but they since left for other islands.
Another yacht, "Slipstream", that dwarfs the 150' Four Jacks, just docked at Port St Charles. 196+ feet! Just beautiful!
Like BillL said, the CMN "Slipstream" sailed in just after 16:00 LT
OMG, you were right there watching what we were watching Ron! Terrific shots....thank you! Can you believe how smoothly the Captain docked that boat? Most people can't park a car that perfectly!
Yep it was done pretty easily... that's why you have a lookout on the bow and at the stern to help guide the captain on the wing. Working together that kind of thing is relatively easily done.
Interesting timing. In the Chinese sense.
Did any of you see one of Four Jacks fender lines snap of during Slipstreams docking maneuver?
Thankfully just a broken collar bone for the co-owner of Dirona.
Four Jack reportedly gone without a word.
That's awful. A few inches and it could have hit her head and not the collar bone. According to the comments on Dirona's blog, although the crew of Four Jacks tried to assist her when it happened, the captain of Four Jacks never even stopped by to see how she was before leaving PSC this morning.
Another one of "Secret". She was located off Sandy Lane... just about halfway down the coast from PSC Marina. She since departed Barbados and has been to the Grenadines and now moving up the islands.
There is a very sleek Trimaran moored off the beach at PSC today. It is marked "Barbados" on the hull and bears the number "70". It looks like a racing boat. Is there an upcoming race nearby?
Sailing Concise 10 is her name... she was here for about 2 months took part in the race/showdown with Phaedo 3... for that race she was renamed 'Miss Barbados'... she left I seen her up SXM area and I think it was just yesterday she came back here. Not sure if she has more racing around here to do.
Thats a MOD70, one of the Team Conchise (UK) boats.
Renamed Ms Barbados for the Round Barbados Race at the end of January they just have competed in the Caribbean 600 finishing 2nd on Line Honors 10 minutes behind Phaedo 3.
Finishing late on the 23rd, doing some regatta related stuff and then an easy drive home to the temporary Barbados base.
No idea how long they'll stay, if it is a while they likely to to do their outreach activities and it should(tm) be possible to get a tour or a ride. Their next race is the De Guingand Bowl Race back in the UK in May.
Those MOD70s are ridiculously sexy boats... would love to see them race one day. Better still, get an afternoon's ride on one.
Beyond being just sexy... they are ridiculously fast! oh by the way "Alfa Nero" is here... have a photo to post at some point.
As promised, here is a photo I took of the 269-foot OceAnco-built "Alfa Nero" last night. If you haven't read out exquisite review of this same yacht you may do so here... http://www.yachtforums.com/review/oceanco-yacht-269-alfa-nero.9024/
She left last night for Soufriere, St. Lucia... then from there should be heading to SXM to go through the bridge for the first time!
I saw her in St. Lucia last year... her crew were enjoying some free time on the same beach we were on. The black hull has serious presence, even from a distance.
"Mondango 3" is here now... came yesterday... I didn't even know! If she is still here later I will try to snap a few.
Unfortunately, she didn't stay very long...has departed for the Grenadines yesterday. I actually went to photograph her in the night BUT she was not lit and dint make any sense, then she departed yesterday.
Photo I took of the 2009-build CRN "Azteca" in PSC Marina last night
