Thanks for that  IT.  Couple of guys, one of them at least from SSANZ jumped on and helped retrieve everything without having to cut away the rigging which was much appreciated as it's only a couple of months old.  Sorry I didn't catch their names when talking to Paul.  Everything rigging was replaced this year in a big overhaul apart from the chainplate bolts as careful inspection showed no issues.  Guess what?  They will all be replaced now!  Shakedown race did it's job nicely.

The boats on charter to an international team for the 49ers worlds and Neil was handing it over to them

So it seems to work as per requirements, amusingly the guy that will mostly drive it was on SMU
