The team began the day with boat work. Jobs included sail work, cleaning, and finishing the re-do of the new non-skid over the freshly clear-coated deck. (That's three hyphens in a sentence folks). It was a beautiful job completed by Matt Noble, Dave Rasmussen, Molly Robinson and Kaity Storck. Thanks guys! It's like a new boat! Our boat's cockpit has gone from shab to fab! Boat work quit promptly at 2 p.m. because the team was required to attend the Transatlantic Race awards ceremony. We returned to the house to shower and change. Properly attired, we drove to Southampton and caught a fast ferry straight to Cowes.
