South Island was launched on Monday 8th April. It was very nerve wracking to see and hear her being picked up by the boat hoist. She was then carried to the slipway and down into the water where she was dunked very slowly and put onto a pontoon – very exciting to watch! We were allowed a quick look down below before she had to be moved. It was quite windy so interesting to watch the manoeuvring before she was motored off to her temporary berth in Mylor. She looked very stately and elegant moving along the Penryn River under the command of Nick and Adrian from Rustler. We are eagerly looking forward to next week when we can sail her ourselves!
