The Work Starts!

The short list of work to do on the boat includes such things as: renewing the non skid in the cockpit floor and a few of her dents throughout in the gel, renewing the fluoro paint on the keel and rudders, reinstating a bunch of hardware that has been replaced, reinstating all of the standing rigging for the mast and last but certainly not least…..installing all of our glorious new Raymarine electronics and autopilots and a new vhf radio from Icom.

Then and only after all of that can I go sailing to test the new pilot, calibrate and make sure everything is ready for the delivery to Douarnenez! The Mini Transat race starts in 35 days!!!

    35 days, then you will cross an ocean.
    All alone.
    On a tiny sled of fiberglass.

    IMHO you will measure your life around this trip.

    Best wishes, and good luck.
    And please say hello to my old friend, the ocean moon…he kept me company on many lonely nights at sea.
