14 DTG – North Sails delivery!
DTG? Days To Go... On June 5th we will sail our first Nautic Mile. Now I know for certain, since I just picked up the updated sails from the North Sails loft in Stockholm. Martin stood there with everything set and welcomed me with a bunch of blue sail bags. What a guy. Santa Claus will have to work pretty hard to be more popular than Martin after a day like this:-)
The main sail has been updated with another reef, fixed with new batten sliders for the new mast and a the new national identity has been mounted. The new furling jib was folded out on the floor and apart from looking awesome, it looks like it is longing for to get going. Then it was time to roll out the Code... My immediate thought was if Torqeedo's sail drive, folding prop and Lithium batteries will be tough enough to take care of the hydropower created by this sail:-) I will let you know.
