We have quite a mix of nationalities (and personalities) on board for this race. We have 4 Germans along with the owner Hans, Alex the captain is Italian but grew up in, Franco and Santi are from Argentina along with Peter (who is married to a Canadian from just outside London!), Tom is half French and half English, so he certainly has his share of personality conflicts (just kidding, he is a great guy). That leaves the American contingent to Andrew and I and we felt we needed to celebrate July 4th in style.
Andrew and I cooked bacon cheese burgers for the crew in honor of Independence Day and served with coleslaw and ice cold beer. We tried to set the mood with a little country music, but that didn´t take as well as the burgers (I fried up proscuttio and used that as bacon -- perhaps that was the reason for the positive reviews). I guess Toby Keith and Jimmy Buffett are an acquired taste.
