A Journal Of a Cruise on S.Y. Eleanda
From Hamble to Brittany, Normandy and back
17th to 27th September 2015
-By Nigel Lindsay-Fynn
Passing eight years old, Eleanda was in need of a standing rigging check and other significant
routine maintenance, all of which was carried out at HYS on the Hamble River. She ended up out of
the water for much of the summer with the mast removed, as on inspection the 18mm steel rod
rigging showed fatigue cracks. Caution dictated it should all be replaced, no small task.
