Earlier today the 45 meter mast was re-stepped in the Swan 112 Highland Breeze. The RSB team received the mast from the painters with only two days to dress and prepare it for the stepping procedure.
After putting in a few extra hours in the evenings the mast and boom were ready to go and lifted straight into the boat as soon as it launched. The mast will be tuned tomorrow and the spartite poured, sea trials will take place on Tuesday before the boat leaves for a busy Caribbean season later in the week.
Meanwhile, at the other end of the STP yard the 65 meter Red Dragon mast is also being re-dressed in preparation for re-stepping on Wednesday 1st December.
