Grand Prix racer "Alive" has arrived in Port Vila after a 6 day trip from Melbourn Australia. They covered some 2000 nm to the finish line in Port Vila before noon on Sunday the 6th of July. The commodore and other committee members of the Vanuatu Cruising Yacht Club, Vanuatu Yacht Services and the Port Vila Boatyard were all there to welcome the yacht and her crew to a mooring in front of the Port Vila Boatyard. They will be here for about a week before blasting off again to their next racing event in Australia. More news and photos to follow later after the crew welcome party on the beach in Port Vila.
