T minus two weeks

Im at home at the moment and as usual I’m paying people either for work done or for parts. I’ll be glad to end this process of setting up the boat from scratch!
The new sails arrive on Friday. its forecast light winds ideal for putting new sails on but not so great for a sea trial. i’m hoping for a good sea breeze!
The dinning room table is currently knee deep in the first aid / meds kit items as well as cruising guides, charts and the iridium phone.
It feels like there is still so much to do but eventually I will just have to drop the lines and depart. i’m sure we will have forgotten something and have jobs to do en route. but thats all part of the fun right?
