After their intrepid cruise around the Atlantic during 2015 – 2017, Helma & Bob Hermans have now started to think about doing a bit of sailing again! They have now completed the mast repair on their yacht S/Y Sunny Spray, which was damaged during their Atlantic cruise, and she is almost ready to go to sea once more.

They started to reinstall the mainsail last week – Hans Sleutjes and Hugh Epsom went along to help at the Club  Náutico de Oliva marina.

They plan to complete the mainsail rigging over the next couple of weeks, and then to take the yacht to sea to do some fine tuning of the sails.

Helma has previously given some very interesting presentations to the CBYA about their Sunny Spray adventure, if you missed them, click HERE for details of their voyage.

We are looking forward to seeing Sunny Spray back at sea!
