The repairs to the side of the boat are now complete and the final touches are being made to the inside of the hull. On Thursday evening it will be time for the painting, with the boat due to leave the yard on Friday morning at seven.

The mast is currently being cooked; the standing rigging should arrive tomorrow (Thursday) to be fitted on Friday morning. Concerning the logistics, everything appears to be falling into place, in spite of a very tight schedule. The goal is to get the boat back in the water on Saturday.
