Don’t worry, you have not missed the final episode of the Firefly diary (no 18), the crew did.
It all started with that bet of a bottle of rum with Duncan. We finished at 07 59 30 local time (GMT – hours) on 13th December after a passage that I will from hereon insist took seventeen days (and a little bit). Duncan won and like all generous bet winners, once we were safely docked in Rodney Bay Marina he shared it around and like all good arrival parties, from then on, as they say, things went downhill and the matter of filing a final story was lost in a mist of rum punches, ice cold ‘Heinies’, hamburgers and the swapping of many tales.
