Photographer Dani Devaux took some time out of her busy schedule to come down to the marina to view our boat Good Expectation. Dani is a photographer on the island and she always manages to get that picture that captures the moment so well, so we figured she was the right person for the job.
Getting some ideas Dani.....
We had a little but very important problem .... We had no engine ..... yet! So we had to be towed out to get some pictures out on the water. With the help of the IGY crew we managed to get a dingy to tow us out
We also had some friends on board to set the social scene.....
Soriah who could not help but pick up the guitar and have a sing
"Are you going Scarborough fair la la"
Charles looking damn fine in his Jus'Sail t-shirt
Charles and James
Herbert our First Mate with his pal from Canada Chuck
Picture taken by Dani
And of course the Captain James
Chuck was getting so excited about being out on the water he actually thought he was sailing .... No Chuck your still being towed.....
James and Herbert finding a spot to anchor .....
This photo taken by Dani
Charles being a sea fairing man had to also check to make sure everything was in place
Yep no sea birds
Yep everything nice and secure .....
Here is a sneak preview of some pictures Dani took on the day there will be more to view in the coming weeks on the Jus'Sail website
Jus'Sail will be offering only the very best in local food and drink .....
As I mentioned before these pictures are just a taster of what Dani took on the day and boy did she work hard so she figured it was time to take a well earned break .....
It was a fun filled day had by all

What a busy and eventful week I have had and the reason for this is because James and I have finally got Our boat Good Expectation out of the spray tent and into the water.....
After 5 weeks of painting
And more painting
And more painting
We finally moved her out into the bright St Lucian sunshine!
Into the water
This picture was taken last year in Antigua when I first saw her sitting pretty in the water with the Galleon beach behind her
But boy does she look different now and I look forward to posting another picture in a similar setting soon!
Our first First Mate Herbert kept painting right up until the last minute
We had friends who have been a great support and who we would like to thank for turning up .....
Adam IGY marina and boat yard manager
Soriah & James (& baby Lara)
Christina, Charles, Anya, Ian and last but not least Jo ... thanks for bringing your camera along
And another big Hooray from us
