A cornerstone of yachting the world over. The dock party works like this. A chef or two are coerced into cooking a BBQ on the dock. Fridges are raided of alcohol. Plastic cups are appropriated. Neighbouring crews are invited.

We had quite a good dock party last night. It started at about 3pm and finished when it started to get dark. I slept very soundly and was very sluggish this morning. It must have been something I drank.

Of course I do feel like I am bragging a bit. My poor Wife is struggling through a heavy charter season and I am lying around in Sun loungers and having bbq’s. My only real explanation for this is that my Dragons luck finally has kicked in. It was lying dormant for a good portion of France but is blazing away in Italy.

Here be Dragon.
