Good luck to them, don't envy them though!
However the Green Dragon people have been sailing around on a boat that I heard from someone very in the know wasn't fit to leave Dublin Bay
Ireland is full of bullshitters mate....
I sailed for the whole of last summer and I was there through the entire refit. We took every single bit of that boat apart and reassembled her with a lot of new gear. She was in excellent ocean racing condition.
She was in good shape when I was on too, as long as you didn't motor over 6 kts.
True North (GD) is halfway across the Pacific, taking a minor holiday at Christmas Island. A little work on the bow was done there too, but otherwise she's nice and fit
Now has a fixed prop so that motor problem is fixed, finally! They broke a longitudinal in the bow but it is all fixed and I hear the test sail went well!!
