14 January 2011 Draig entry into the Fastnet confirmed by RORC 

 

30 January - delighted to announce that Neal Yeoell has joined the team. We had a cracking sail today in subzero tempertures but glorious sunhine. Sadly Neal's father died last year from prostate cancer, so he is keen to join the team and get active with the fundraising.

20 February The mast is down. Many thanks to Andy and Steve for turning out at an unsociable hour on Sunday morning

20 March - Two weeks late but despite having to replace the mast foot we were pleased to re-step the mast at weymouth sailing club. many thanks to Atlantic Spars with the help of Nic Findlay ( our newest recruit to the team), Mickey Carter, Steve Dadd and Ray Capp. We're all re-rigged and ready to go 

10th April - Draigy's first race of the Season - first of the Weymouth Spring Series. Sadly we won't be able to make any of the rest of the series
11th April- Draig lifted at the Academy for 10 days annual scrub off & antifoul. New Secocks & reroute of the pipework above the water line. Polish & paint inside the diesel locker Yuk!! Get all the emergency equipment back on board & re-fit the pipe cots. Re upholstered cushions she's looking grand and with antislip paint on the floor below much easier to stand up on a heel
