Road to the Route du Rhum 2018

Boat ready to be picked up in Lorient

The Boat got finished at the end of last week in the yard FR nautisme the end of last week. At home, the first boxes of deckgear arrived, I had my last day work as gardener and finished the last jobs as electrician two days ago, so ready to go and get the boat!

My french was put to its test as i had to organize a permit for an over width transport through France, after sending all the paperwork to the wrong department and a few emails and phone calls later it should be on its way now. The only things which aren’t ready are the sails 😦 the sailmaker called me to tell me that he didn’t get the cloth for some of the sails yet, so he’s going to deliver directly to switzerland.

Hitting the road tomorrow for 1100k drive to the atlantic coast of france super excited!

I will keep you updated on our progress.
