No wind this weekend so we kept working on the list. Plenty to do. These boats are complex and there are a lot of systems that need sorting out. Everyone has been pulling long hours trying to make up for our late start with the project.
Monday we will have the christening of the Black Pearl at Ocean Village. This will mark the culmination of five fast paced months to pull this program together and get the boat into the water. Disney is hosting the event so it should be a good show. We are hoping to head off on our 2000 mile qualfication sail right after the christening Monday evening. We have been organizing everything from the food, clothes, canting keel machinery, generator, water maker, head, and media station not to mention normal things like sails and running rigging.
We have been lucky with the weather here. No rain in the last two weeks which is great for working outside. Also, we are growing in numbers each day. Today Rodney Adern arrived from Alinghi along with Carol Nicolau, and tomorrow Jerry Kriby arrives from the USA.
All going well.
