Default Round the County

A great, but somewhat misleading photo taken shortly after the day 2 start on our clearing tack. This was a gentle duck. However there was a loud bang and crunch at the start. I think Bravo Zulu (ex Something Wicked) and White Cloud.

Default Hot Rum

The Dec 3 Hot Rum was called due to a lack of wind, naturally some breeze filled in shortly after so we did some practising. Raven did not come with a reef in the main, the boat manual says it is not really meant to be reefed but we installed a reef to comply with the safety requirements. So we tested that out in daylight and light wind, learned a few things. Went and played around with the 2 Beney 40.7s which looked like they were having some great boat for boat tuning. Then practiced a spinnaker peel. A good day on the water.

I'm starting to put two and two together here Alymatt. I know someone on your boat, Nick. Him and my wife are sort of cousins (family friends that go way back). I checked out the video of your last VI360 recently, great video indeed!!

sorry for the hijack "raven".......... but yes Nick - our "SPARKY" for the race! He sure earned his ticket around the rock last time - hopefully he's coming next year too!

Default Mast Inspection

At the 2012 Boat Show, Pro-Tech Yacht Services awarded Raven a complimentary rig inspection in recognition of the team bringing a new boat up to speed so quickly and winning the 2011 VARC Div 1 Overall. It was really great to have the boats accomplishments recognized by a competetor and a the rig inspection was great and provided some solid advice.

Having a rig inspection with a written report once every year or two certainly provides you with excellent proof of due diligence if you end up demasted as we did a couple of Straits ago.

Thanks to the crew at Pro-Tech

Default 3D High Definition Scan

Below/attached is a work in progress, a 3 dimensional point cloud, this is just a screen capture, when working with the 3D model it can be rotated and cross sections generated at will. We will be substituting surfaces for the point clouds.
