Well the difference from the day leading up to and on New Year's Eve is night and day. The new year is shaping up to be a ripper: Day #1 - ISIS discovered and survived! Day #2 - invited to do the TransPac Race! Day #3 - what appears to be a yacht delivery for early summer!
...Cape Town to Rio Race, TransPac, Fastnet & the Sydney Hobart all in one-year ?! It's looking very possible!!
