the Captain wihes he'd wait a few hours to come in.
|There was much fan fare and many dignataries were|
on hand to see us off. We even made the evening news.

The closing ceremonies had many surprises. The most unexpected was finding out Talos IV finished 2nd (plus) in her division. She got special mention from the Grand Poobah who said the "plus" was due to the amount of sailing combined with her overall time. I think she is a fine vessel indeed!
|The last night out enroute to Cabo started with this|
beautiful sunset and it was warm enought to wear
shorts and tee shirts on watch.
