For me it was great to see the old Varuna IV (now Tonnerre) next to the Varuna VI on the dock… A few times from up the rig as you can see.
This trip again involved a bit of work in the lead up to the regatta, back in Antigua, for me playing with carbon. We extended the boom by 1.2 metres to fit a mainsail that was on delivery with an extra 22 square metres.
The regatta for our team was purely to test the new main, and to look at how we can improve the boat leading into the Pacific Cup, where I will also race with the team.
Looking like a busy year, but as always BoaTEC Australia will get the job done.
