A strangely subdued Spirit of Juno crew crosses the ARC finish line

At 21:43.44 on Saturday Spirit of Juno crossed the finishing line at St Lucia after 2,931 sea miles. We have managed to start the troublesome engine, so that we can go alongside. Crew are all looking forward to a couple of Sherberts, as Smithy would put it.

We are all strangely subdued. Each person is contemplating the next few hours, days and the previous 20.

A more complete update to follow after tonight’s celebrations.
