 The Big One - Crossing the Atlantic

"hings had worked out well in the end. We had arrived in daylight, and had perfect sailing conditions as we rounded the southern point of Barbados. We hoisted our Q flag and the Barbados courtesy flag, plus (not for the first time) the code flags "RN" at the port crosstrees. Heading up north in the lee of the island, we sailed past Carlisle Bay, where we could see dozens of yachts at anchor. We called the signal station on the breakwater to notify them of our arrival, then headed in, tacking up between the cruise liners to where some yachts were moored at the far end. Rounding up under sail, we took our lines ashore and made them fast. We'd made it."
