On Friday the 23th of April Isabell was back in the lake at Rastaholm. After a short period of fine spring weather we are back to snowfall and coldness. Nevertheless, Isabell is afloat and ready for another sailing season. In the weekend of the 30th April – 2 May the mast is back in place, and the boat stocked up with food, water and warm clothes. Soon will take her out to the seaside. Now with new rigging details and shiny new Lewmar 40 ST winches for the genua. The rudder repair was successful, no more clonking sounds from the rudder hinges. Looking through my old logbooks I concluded that I have sailed Isabell halfway around the equator (11 500 nautical miles) since I bought her in 2008. Let’s hope for many more miles of sailing fun!
