Final day before the race start. The boat is prepared. Had a long time to make a lot of small improvements from Italy and I have a new medium spi to use.
Today I hope to get a test sail in and spend the rest of the day looking at weather and routing. Its not looking great, very light and variable. The Select is one of the harder races. Its only 350Nm but it is all between islands, so there are lots of coastal effects and tides that the locals know very well and it means there is not much time to sleep as there are many big rocks and boats close together to hit.... not planning on that!
