Salute to s/v PERSEUS in St Maarten

This morning's Dutch bridge opening in St. Maarten was quite moving... As the sailing yacht PERSEUS entered the lagoon everyone saluted the yacht with their horns. It lasted about 5 minutes.

Here's a photo of the 163-foot, Perini Navi charter yacht Perseus from the 2008 St. Barths Bucket Race from the Monaco Eye website.

As most of you probably already know, the Australian 38-year-old yacht skipper Drew Gollan was fatally shot in Antigua last week. You can read about this tragic incident in Latitude 38's online magazine... CLICK HERE

Our sincere condolences to all...
