Campagne de France back on the water at last!

Everything has been thoroughly inspected, including the keel, the mast and boom, the sails, engine, electronics etc. The boat passed measurement last week, and is now rigged and almost ready to sail.

Replacing the two cancelled transatlantic races is the Vendée – Arctique – Les Sables d’Olonne, a new solo 3600 mile race, starting and finishing off Les Sables d’Olonne, via a waypoint north of the Arctic Circle, and a waypoint near the Azores. The race start is likely to be the 4th of July. It will provide a great opportunity to get some much-needed time on the water to (re)learn as much as possible, as well as to test all the systems in preparation for the Vendée Globe which starts on the 8th of November.
