OLYMPIC SAILS AGAIN!







This morning, July 1st, 2006, the new R.C.S. OLYMPIC returned to the water for her builder's check out and trials. It was an extremely encouraging voyage for me.

The voyage began as the sun was coming up at about 6:30 am at Chapparral Lake in Scottsdale. It was actually very pleasant weather, in contrast to the Motor Trials held last Sunday in 100+ degree-heat. Despite not sleeping at all the previous night, I was very excited to see her out running around.

The only problems seem to be her incomplete detailing, her funnels which seem to be too tall, and her wide turning radius.

Of course, all problems will be resolved fully before the next voyage, but for now, please enjoy these pics from todays trials!

The Olympic was white before I finished it. For the Maiden Voyage, I painted her black. I wanted to see a white Olympic at least for a little while.
