Worth the effort

The sweat and tears of the past 5 weeks working on RW seem but a distant memory now we have had some wind in her sails. Daz, Dani, Marty and Deb crewed on Sat for a short social sail to settle the rigging so I could do my final adjustments. With a toggle on the forestay I made a 200mm reduction in mast rake and she appeared quite well balanced, although a bit more breeze would have given me a better indication.

Insurance is all sorted on the public liability front and I now have full race coverage. Just need to arrange the safety equipment audit,  submit the proforma along with the insurance certificate and race entry form....then we are in business. Only took a year and a bit, but she looks fantastic!
