Today saw us prepare the Committee “B” boat, a Sunsail 384 by Robertson & Caine and named Yazawa, for the upcoming races. This took a while to complete as we had to put signs, poles, pennants and the like. Later in the day we had our team meeting with all of the organizers and boat volunteers after which we repaired the SMYC for a couple of drinks and I ended up going to Barnacle's for some Feta cheese as dinner before retiring relatively early, as we all had to meet up by 7AM at the SMYC the next morning.
