OGOC is on her way to France as we speak.  She’s taking the luxury cruise approach aboard the container ship Alyssa and I’m sure ordering room service as we speak!  When we get to France we will have to clear customs, remove her from her container, put her on her keel, do a whole new layer of bottom paint and some major sanding, and then fully rig and tune.  Plus there’s all of the shore work.  The liferaft needs to get certified, files need to be sorted with Class Mini, and loads and loads of other “stuff” to get done.  We have new running rigging and gear to install and lots of race homework before the first race April 14th!  Phew!!!  🙂
