From the Nancy Blackett Trust
Nancy Blackett finally started her new sailing season last Saturday (April 29th) when she left the Tidemill Marina in Woodbridge at about 1.00pm, as soon as there was sufficient depth of water over its sill.
Her new mast looked splendid, and performed excellently during the short cruise round to Shotley Marina on the Stour/Orwell junction. The complexities associated with fitting the new mast, its associated rigging and wiring issues had delayed her relaunch, originally scheduled for April 8th, by three weeks. New instrumentation includes replacement of the Tac Tic system, and a new AIS receiver.
