After ( what seems like) a lifetime of waiting and missing an awful lot of sailing our new mast is here - Hooray. Big thanks to those at selden for pulling out the stops & producing in record time. The restepping is now scheduled for Thursday 11am - unfortunately too late for the Channel Race. All, but Albert, of the crew are going to have a relaxing weekend in Cherbourg. Well overnight Friday & back Sat night/Sunday morning. Should be a good team building experience & a good opportunity to try out the sails on the new mast. Looking forward to getting back on the water again.
