Having spent a week organizing endless stores in the container in Plymouth, CAFFARI is eager to start sea trials and commence the bonding process with the yacht Aviva. She commented, 'We will be sailing and handling all the upwind sail combinations this week and this will allow me the chance to use the new furling systems and winch pedestal that have been fitted to Aviva during her modification process. I am looking forward to being able to fine tune the rig with the sails up, and completing the final tweaks to her.'
The downwind sails are due to arrive from America next week, which will allow complete familiarization with the sail wail wardrobe. CAFFARI will then sail to Portsmouth ahead of an official naming ceremony at Gunwharf Keys on 16 November.
