D-day has arrived. Departure day. We’ve spent five days taking apart everything we had spent three months setting up. De-rigged, unstepped the mast, stowed, padded and prepared. All that was required was to pootle around the marina to the hoist, slide the straps under her belly, hoist her up and lower her into the clasp of the waiting truck. Just like that.
