Sv Liahona – Captain Mark and Admiral Willie along with crew/guests Dick (Big Dick) and Deb, Canadians that previously cruised but who swallowed the hook and now live ashore in Nova Scotia. Mark and Willie are repeat visitors to Guyana. FYI - Mark and Willie have a large dinghy with big outboard. They also borrowed sv Cape's large dinghy with big outboard for this trip. These two plus sv Persephone's dinghy were the primary modes of transport for the 4 miles trip into Bartica.

Oh what a circus we were wherever we went. We couldn’t help it. I hope at least we were entertaining to the locals like a circus would be.
