Wed 12 june 2013 – Sydney (CYCA)
Chimere leaves Thursday at 9am. Today the crew has been busy with last minute tasks. The damaged running backstay fitting was welded back in place. The water tanks were filled. The repaired spinnaker pole arrived and was put back in place. The gas detector was re soldered. Last minute carpentry tasks were done, and some light globes were replaced. While pumping fuel, the diesel pump was found to be worn and a new pump was sourced after frantic internet searches. The crew are all on board, and our skipper, Bob Brenac, will be joining us in the morning. The forecast is favourable and we look forward to an interesting fortnight ahead.
