Successful Sea Trials

Friday, January 9th, 2009

So the first sea trials were a success, with Jem, Tim & Sheep as support crew on Jeez-Louise keeping an eye out for us last weekend.  The boat went back to Rossiters Sunday night to carry on the work with the steering system and ocean gliders. 

We are picking up the boat this afternoon and will be braving the weather again departing¬†Newhaven at high tide tomorrow morning with Jeez-Louise meeting us at around 3pm¬†from Brighton.¬† We’ll then row through the night and dock up Sunday afternoon to discuss anything that we think might need modifying before the boats heads back to Christchurch for possibly its last week before being shipped to Australia!
