Thanks to Fasthosts and Ultimate sails, we will very soon have some of the latest technology new carbon sails on Pixel Flyer. They are due to arrive in early January. The first job will be to remove the current sails, no mean feat with over 70 square metres of fully battened mainsail – almost twice that of most similar sized boats!
Once we have the new sails fitted we will be out testing them to make sure they fit perfectly and see if any final adjustments are needed before taking them off again and delivering them to Ocean Art for their Fasthosts branding.
Black sails with an iconic yellow top – should be easy to spot sailing around.
Then it will be off for the next World Record attempt. The paperwork has already been submitted so it will be time to keep and eye on the weather again – watch this space for more details and tracker info…
