Otra Vez is currently at Hamble Yacht Services in the Uk. The winter project list is pretty small, with a non-skid respray and moving the jib leads inboard being the majority of the effort. We are hoping to get an effective sheeting angle of 4.5 degrees with the changes to the jib leads.
A few photos of the work that is just getting started...
For the more technical minded we are using 200kg/m3 HD core as was originally specified for the boat, then 7 layers of uni-directional carbon and 3 layers of db carbo, which is 2 skins more than the original spec.
We hope to finish the jib lead mods by the middle of next week then the painters will take over and shoot the deck.
Our first regatta on a Fast40+ startline is the RORC Easter Challenge, March 25-27.
