    Winter recovering in Viareggio

    22 December 2014

    We are deep into our winter program in Viareggio and undertaking maintenance concentrating mainly on the varnishing. The mast has been repaired and has had a good coat and the booms have already had 2 coats each. Quite tricky with the amount of rain we have had but we'll get there. The bowsprit has been removed and is lying in the Del Carlo shipyard. It has been stripped back to bare wood and has already had 5 new coats of varnish. We...

    Argentario sailing week… How wonderful!

    23 June 2014

    Another fantastic Panerai event, Argentario Sailing Week 2014 had a wonderful fleet of 52 classics that have been racing competitively over the last 3 days.

On Eilean we were not racing but catering for many Panerai VIP's and enjoyed reaching up and down the race course with a certain amount of spectating involved. My main mission has...
