The boat is all packed up and headed to Den Hague, we follow tomorrow via train. Despite the surprises about our boat and all of it´s repairs and fixes and the lack of wind, it´s been a great experience and good to get our first European event under our belts. We have a laundry list of further upgrades that we´ll do to the boat when we arrive in Den Hague, including removing the bridal traveller and replacing it with a proper traveller car system like our boat back home, new spinnaker sheets, and new auto bailers (ours leak!). We´re also very keen to actually get SAILING! We´ve befriended an Australian team of twin brothers who will also be in Den Hague very shortly, and we´re keen to train with them.
After packing up the boat today, Erin and I went and visited the U-boat memorial in Kiel. It was very interesting and do I ever feel sorry for the poor soldiers who had to serve inside of those tiny cramped quarters.
More once we reach Den Hague.
