Just about ready to rumble Pics & Text

Hi Everyone,
Have posted all the latest Pics of my progress with guiding Light, the 2 here are Duncan starting to remove the caulking from the foredeck, and a Pic of the beach front clubhouse of the St Lucia Yacht Club.

I have been made very welcome again here, and last Sunday was invited to race in an Optomist race for adults! 12 brave and fearless adults took part, and Max, the present sailing instructer organised us into 2 groups of six, we then did 3 races in each group, the top 3 of those took part in the Final, I can report after coming 3rd in the group races I went through to the Final, and, I came second! winning a bottle of RUM! lovely.
The previous post of pics are as follows:-
Pic 1 = assembling the finished mast. Pic 2 = mast detailing. Pic 3 = Halfway painting the Hull. Pic 4 = Nearly finished hull and detail of mast top. Pic 5 & 6 = Bow and stern of finished Hull.
Only the deck left to finish so could be in the water with mast back in by Friday this coming week! Then after a good cleanup off to Antigua to take part in the classic racing again! I am booked in, so more news pics and fun to be had again this year, the 24th event.
