Tigo II Delivery
I was recently asked by an ex student of Brittany Sailing to help deliver their new (to them) yacht. It is a very smart recently restored and re fitted Contessa 32. Unfortunately we were beaten by the weather with the arrival of "Son of the Beast From the East" The weather turned from very pleasant spring conditions to sub zero temperatures and horizontal snow! Certainly not the conditions to set out for a 48 hour + passage with a very inexperienced crew.
As it turned out we probably would not have been ready to leave within the allotted time anyway as there were a lot of jobs that needed doing before we could have sailed, running new reefing lines, fitting the auto helm, replacing the anchor warp, reorganizing deck leads to name but a few!
We might not have got the boat to her new home yet but we left her much better set up for sea.
