New Adventures with TIN TIN

After a considerable amount of fettling by the amazing team at Arzal Nautique, our newly acquired OVNI 455CC has been rebadged from JANESEA to TIN TIN.  Anne and Paul did a 3 day test cruise to Hoedic, Morbihan and Houat, experiencing calms and then plenty of wind.  We bent our expensive new Hook & Moor boat hook in Houat where she is shown moored below.  The hook went through the ring on the buoy, jammed and then took the full strain as we tried to release to get the line through. Lots of expensive ballbearings now won flow through the jammed ball race.

Now Mark and Paul are ready to take her north to Falmouth, picking up crews en route.
