The mast was raised on Saturday 26.5. Now Tarantella is ready for sailing, but some electrical problems with the genset stopped us from going out yet. But there are still a few days for some training before the first race on 3.6.
See pictures of the mast job in our gallery .
Launch today 24.5, finally!
Tarantella has been all winter dwelling inside in the warm Lindgren's wharf for repair of the damages caused in the collision in Haukilahti last summer, where she got a hole in the side and the navigation table got cracked.
Everything is now beautifully repaired by Lindgren's skilled kraftsmen. We took the opportunity to renew the electrical system at the same time. The old system was already 37 years out of date. The bottom has again been painted by Hempel's Mille Xtra giving a fine gloss. See pictures in our Gallery .
After the launch Tarantella was motored to NJK for hoisting of the mast on Saturday 26.5. We are now busy with re-installing and re-connecting all instruments around the navigation table.
Our first race is WB Round the Buoys on 3.6.2007. We look forward to a tough race with Admiral Tom Finell and FiftyFun, who has taken the lead position in IMS3 in the Vestek IMS Ranking.
Next challenge is Volvo Suursaari Race, where our goal is ro renew our victory from last year.
