Appears so...

Looks like Dauntless has anchored, or picked up a ball.
Richard, Well done!

I think the LAST thing Richard wants is a tuna sandwich!

Pie, PIE, is what Richard wants!

The local restaurant is a very good idea.

Later,

Can you imagine the sound of shutting those engines down??? Lifting a glass to Richard & Dauntless.
Well Done!

Richard, whenever you read this, congratulations on an incredible voyage. We have all shared the highs and lows with you. It was incredible to see how many of us were with you as you made your journey. Thanks so much for sharing this journey with us and and making us a part of it! Sleep well!

I bet he's on the dock. Just sent him a text. Lets all text him now! He doesn't need to sleep. He can do that tomorrow!

Sometimes you have to refresh the page and try again. This has happened to me a few times and just did a few minutes ago when I sent Richard a Congratulation text.

Later,

I have been following this since post #1, and I gotta say, it has been one heck of a ride. Scary at times. So glad you made it safe & sound Richard....

How long is he going stay? I think he said for the winter, somewhere in Ireland. Go to post#1, by Richard, click on his Blog. His plans are in the blog.

Seems like he is anchored right "Below" the "E" in Castle:

I am with it until he is safely anchored down. A lot of prayers have been riding along with Richard. Well done, Richard and Julie.

What can I say except that I'm exhausted. I know that's nothing compared to Richard, but what a sprint to the finish! It's a big deal, crossing an ocean in a tiny trawler. Can't help but admire the boat and the skipper.....and it teaches one a bit about trusting ones equipment, knowledge and willingness to see it through. Sincere congratulations, Dauntless and crew of one.
