The Journey so far ...
Premier Flair - RORC Fastnet Race IRC2
Wed 3 Aug 2011 04:52
Well the journey began in March this year when 7 newly enrolled sailors turned up at Swanwick Marina to join Premier Flair for the RORC 2011 Race Programme including the Fastnet.
Two weekends of training, follwed by the Cervantes Trophy race to Le Havre, then the legendry Myth of Malham (Cowes to Eddystone Light and back). This was followed by the Morgan Cup, which presented harsh conditions and due to gear failure we had to retire. The St Malo race in July was a delight and finally the Channel Race which we completed last weekend.
So now we are here, 3rd August, 11 days to go before the start ...
There is still a fair bit of preparation to be done, but this is all going well.
