In May of 2019 we will be embarking on a 12 month circuit of Australia. We will be travelling in an anti-clockwise direction, I am using the logic that we go out of Sydney turn to port and just keep the land on the port side. If it gets on the starboard side we are going the wrong way. Simple right!
Anyway, we had our first haul-out in May 2018 and a lot of preparation was initiated. Electrical systems were upgraded, satellite systems installed, new sail plan with electric furling on all sails including furling boom for the main, backup water systems, exterior lighting, hydraulics backup, stern thrusters, fuel polishing, etc. I will include more details on our modifications in another section.
We will do one more haul-out prior to our departure with final system and hull checks before departure.
