Kornog had a few bits and pieces done to her over the last year but is now complete and she had her first real outing on the Round the Island Race (Round the Isle of Wight). One of 1500 entries we came about 500th on corrected time (I think – the results listings were a bit confusing). Whatever the result it was a great day out force 4 – 5 wind and sunshine. Beat from the start at cowes to the Needles then tacking downwind along the Soth side of the Island until you had to beat to the finish along the solent. 9 1/2 hrs total time.
At Birdham Pool Marina having jackstays fitted, the week before the race. My son Patrick was helping me bring the boat back to its mooring after the work was complete.

Ropes on the deck need to be tidied
