A weekend or two in Christchurch

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

The weekend before last was spent down in Christchurch working on the boat at Rossiters. One of our sponsors, the Captains Club Hotel made us feel extremely welcome, putting us up in one of their superb suites as we enjoyed their first class service after long days down at the boat yard.

We spent Saturday morning with Charlie, going through positioning of equipment and other fittings that are required to meet Woodvale’s safety rules and regulations. The afternoon was taken up painting the inside of the cabins courtesy of Blakes Paints who are providing all are bilge, anti-foul and deck paint for the boat. Now the majority of the equipment has been ordered we should see a lot of progress in the next two weeks edges us ever nearer to getting out on the sea!

Again we will be down in Christchurch this weekend for the same reasons!
