Re Launching Spindrift

 Here she is all painted up and looking very smart.

 We took her down to Penarvan Cove with a little help from our friends
 A bit of mast fitting general tightening of bolts and wires and shes a good-un
 Its all very technical...
 Then away she goes.  Thanks to Dom Andy and Fin, and to the steadfast crew for all her paintwork...

It's getting there

All the crews hard work(THANK YOU), is paying off. Spindrift's looking good. Lots more to do befor she's ready for the water and time is pushing on.
The Helford look fantastic from up here and I'm really looking forward to being back out on my mooring. More painting, some electrics and a bit of woodwork/engineering to do and we will be ready.

A New Year 2011

Last year was great... Loads of sailing... Now ...Its time to sort things out and get ready for another year.
Last  year due to a very hurty back Spindrift didn't come out of the water. She spent the winter sitting happily up the creek. That means that I haven't done anything to the old girl for 2 years now.So its time for some serious maintenance and a chance to sort out all those little things that "will get done one day".
Today is one day, so off we go. Pictures to follow and stuff to be done. All the time looking out over the Helford , What could be better ?
