Launching day 2011

On 3 May 2011 Isabell is going back into the water at the Rastaholm Varv Marina. It is raining that day and +3 degrees Celcius in the air. But it is done! At 15.45 Isabell is floating in the harbour. The engine starts right away and off we are for a little tour around the Marina. I get to stay in a slot on the Guest harbour pontoon jetty. In the rain, then, I put up the boom and sails, stackpack, anchorage gear and rescue materials over deck. Checked for leaks throughout the ship. No leaks! Good.

Ready to sail. During the 4-6 May provisions are stored aboard, and all gear is checked. The new generator appears to work ok.
