I had no idea how touching the launch of a boat can be.
A lot of friends and relatives, a party, 2 experienced sailors (none of them has my name) and a beautiful Alpine lake, the Walchensee which offers great sailing conditions and the perfect stage for the launch.
The boat now has a name - Sylvia, after my deceased mother. The name tags didn´t arrive in time though...
|Dryrun on the rig...|
|The builder receives some christening too...|
|The topsl needs adjustment - point where the halyard is attached needs to go further down....|
|A good varnish is dog-proof...|
|and she SAILS!!!!|
|the wrinkles need to go away but this is an easy thing ...|
