Friday April 18th was Good Friday and an official holiday on Antigua. This meant all the normal cruisers hangouts would be closed. Stir crazy cruisers is a bad idea. Plus 3/4 of the fun of Classic Race Week is the social part.

Ukulele Pat was first up. He was awesome, playing sing along favorites from Johnny Cash, David Allen Coe and many more. Next we heard from the band White Chocolate - aka David and Trudy off s/v Persephone. Trudy's classically trained voice handled covers from Linda Ronstadt, June Carter many more.

As more and more dinghy's arrived, lines were passed up to tie the new arrivals in tight and the floating island of dinghies grew and grew. It was tough to know where your dinghy was tied off. I am not sure what the official dinghy count was but several have said well over 40 dinghies were rafted up. I believe it.

We all brought our own beverages but munchies were shared. Although I did try to horde a couple of really yummy things. There was so much good food.
|Do I HAVE to pass these on?|
|Dancing to the tunes|
A few attempted to dinghy dance - tough to do. However, to my knowledge, no one fell in.
It was an unusual event and fun was had by all. HUGE thanks to m/v Bodacious along with Pat, Trudy and David.
