Friday 13th April new carbon fibre shrouds have been despatched by Smart Rigging Joure to Berthon in Lymington.

All going well the shrouds can be fine tuned to the spreaders and installed the same day. This will be done next week. If succesfull Leen and Dirk-Jan will fly out to Berthon and motor Winsome to Cowes.

Will keep you posted.
