Everybody onboard has to step in and do their bit.... (except some lazy sunglass-wearing girls who are busy looking good...).

...while some try to sort it all out on deck, with their arms full of rope. There is an awefull lot of ropes (hayljards and sheets) and stays onboard such an old, gaff-rigged sailboat!

..the boats are finally ready to cast off and slip out into the river that will bring them out to sea.

These are full bodied and heavy wooden boats with an enormous displacement!

Now comes the chore of making the boat sea-ready.

To meet the open ocean with sometimes strong wind and heavy waves comfortably is only possible in a fully prepared and good ship that is ready in all departments, with a able and strong crew! This is vital for a good race and vital for a nice and safe ride out there!

Fenders have to be stowed away and ropes to be cleared from the deck.






Next: The race is on.
Prepare
- 39 + 40 = 449 + 584
- 41 + 42 = 759 + 809 = "L°peren"
- 43 + 44 = 892 + 947
