Planned work on the Artic 24 

Whilst we have been unable to conduct training and duty weekends we made the decision to bring forward the planned maintenance and upgrades to the technology on board. We have upgraded some of the Raymarine equipment, the navigation lights as well as other minor improvements that were needed due to general wear and tear.

This work was original planed for the end of the 2020 season marking just under 2 years since Sidmouth very generously donated the boat and was needed due to the general wear and tear from the use of the boat in 2019 and our preference on onboard technology
