Heritage Day weekend

With a public holiday posted  tomorrow, many are off for the long weekend, sailing is the Spring Regatta at the False Bay Yacht Club and one of our yachts is entered, thats Nandi the Didi 34 kit we supplied to Nick.

The boat was built by Nick in a time of two years, I was surprised myself at Nicks fast build time and to see the boat being craned into the waters of Hout Bay Harbour one fine summers afternoon.

This is a larger Dix Design, its a Dix43 sailing out in Chapmans Bay on Heritage Day in September 24th 2003. The hull took one man six weeks of working time only to build. So Nandi was even a faster build, proof we can have the boat of our dreams if we get stuck in and do the work ourselves!

How hard can that be?
