Hello all. Had to miss last year's Jester to Azores due to selling my 8M Offshore at the beginning of the year. However I bought a Seal 28 as soon as it was sold and spent the season getting familiar with the handling, hence decision not partake. Now preparations begin again in earnest. Hope to attend Baltimore challenge if all goes to plan and seriously thinking about next year if I can work out logistics.

Right I'm in for Baltimore. Leave booked and the necessary boat modifications are in place ready for launch end of April. Will send details via yahoo to Ewen. Something to look forward to. :D

Good luck, don't forget to take some Pirate themed clothing for Baltimore, otherwise you're going to feel very out of place...:)

Well Garmin AIS 300 fitted and working. Now mulling over whether to fit solar panel or Rutland 914i. Windpilot being ordered in the next week or so. No rush as I need to paint topsides before fitting. New stanchions ordered and lifelines. So far things on track and looking good for launch end of April.

If you wish to show as entering the 2017 Jester Baltimore Challenge you would be better joining the Yahoo jester Challenge Group at
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/jesterchallenge/info

As far as I am aware Ewen doesn't read this forum.

Another option is to turn up at Plymouth a couple of days before and enter then.

The hosts, Tamar river Sailing club, would probably appreciate you at least letting them know as they arrange moorings and hospitality, and very good they both are to....
