We opened the hatches to friends and family on Sunday to toast Tumi and all who sail in her. A great afternoon with everyone seemingly very impressed with her. The reaction of my Mum in particular was marvelous: I don't think she had had any idea about how big Tumi actually, nor how fabulous she looks, from the photos we had shown her and to see her in the flesh, so to speak, completely floored her. It did also give Mum a lot more confidence about our adventure.
Eight hours later Paul & I waved away our final guests and started the big clean up before retiring to our cabin for a good night's sleep before Monday's planned inaugural sail.
