Keelboat Program - Update 4

DSC's 4 new Elliott 7's have finished construction and assemby and are on their way to Darwin.  Packaged in a single 40' container the Elliotts departed China in mid December with the ship due to land in Darwin on the 10th of January.  The container will take some time to clear customs before delivery at DSC where they will be unpacked and stored in the rescue boat compound.  Whilst launching trolleys are being constructed, the commissioning process will be undertaken as conditions allow over the following month including antifouling, rigging and tuning.  

Stay tuned for details of a naming ceremony and Elliott 7 party (date tbc) followed by a members only Come and Try an Elliott 7 Day provisionally scheduled for Sunday April 2nd.
