Cambria has sailed back to Southampton Yacht Services in the UK for a 10-12 month refit. After her final regatta of the season back in June she headed to Old Blighty and is now deep into her work. All tanks (water, fuel, black and grey) have been removed from the bilge to gain access to the fastenings and planking. The glass has been stripped off leaving some ‘good looking’ planking. The firstseven planks up from the keel are the original teak and the remaining planks to the waterline were new in the 70’s and are pitch pine. Above the waterline the planking is mahogany. The entire hull is now drying out before the long task of removing every fastening, checking and cleaning them before refastening them. Also shown is a photo of the crew area up forward, stripped out, ready to paint and additionally allowing access to the fastenings.
