Crew member on NED1261 Pinta-M

Heading to the start on a slightly overcast sunday morning, the crew of

the Pinta-M are looking forward to what appears to be a relatively quiet

race. 7 of the crew have taken part in the Rolex Sydney Hobart with the

boat, in 2008 and 2009 with the skipper hoping for a 'stiff'breeze to

show the best of the S&S 41's qualities. This year there is a new

addition to the crew on the foredeck, Kjeld Ruitenga, who with 6 years

of traning in the Dutch Marines will bring a certain power to the team!

Good luck to all the competitors and we look forward to the welcome in

Plymouth..
