Gracie, for that is her name, was launched on 28th June at Looe in Cornwall where a small crowd of family and friends watched her debut.
All went well and motor trials on the Saturday were followed by a short sailing session the next day.
The owner seemed pleased, and the bystanders, many of whom were boat builders (or certainly appeared to know a thing or two about boats) said nice things. Champagne was poured and there was a small gathering later to celebrate.
Have to say that the whole process was most enjoyable. Thanks Ian.
