Moonstruck reached St Lucia shortly after midnight local time on Thursday 10 December, with an elapsed crossing time of 17d 14h 49m 32s. They actually crossed the finishing line at 03:49:32 GMT. I was in bed in the Warsaw Hilton and got a text from Sam at 0545 central European time. I love time zones. Apparently they were each then greeted by a massive rum punch of knock-out strength, and knew no more until late the next morning.
You can read more about the final hours on Alan & Joan's log.
Guy and I will go to Gatwick early on Monday morning to collect Sam from his flight. Meanwhile he is chilling out and appears to be finding lots of parties to join, including an improptu band with several guitars.
