All crews had to report in on December 1st. Race briefings have started, and everyone must have their boat undergo scrutineering – a very rigorous review of the technical aspects of the boat. It was my turn yesterday and The Boat House did very well (I had her pre-scrutineered before she made the journey to La Gomera.). Here she is getting her race number applied – one of the outstanding items from today’s checks. Her list was very short and she looks to be in good shape.
