Immigrant’s
Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race 2008.

We
arrived in the F Truck with Immigrant in tow at Shorncliffe and the QCYC,
which is where the 60th Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht race was to start
from in 3 days time. Unpacking the boat and preparing the yacht to be
rigged and lifting into the water on Wednesday morning accounted for the
rest of Tuesday. Restless arrived behind the Turkey Slapper, the excess
foxtel cable removed from the mast and she was also ready to go.

Wednesday morning and a crane a bit smaller than Bob the Builder’s crane
turned up to put Immigrant & Restless in the water. He was promptly
sacked, another crane requested and both yachts were in the water by 1000h.
