I am to say that Soitec is now afloat in La Rochelle.
There's been a lot of complicated behind the scenes work and planning to get there, but its great to see.
I had some problems getting the keel on the boat as the marina would not let me work on the boat with it hanging from the crane. This meant I had to drive to a workshop out in the countryside to hoist the boat and put it on a from high trailer, insert the keel and then take the whole lot back to La Rochelle.
Tomorrow, I plan to put the rig in, and then sail on Tuesday. Fingers crossed!
My plans have changed slightly, I think now I am going to head to the Med to get the earliest races in the season.
