We will arrive in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia on 24th May. Elemiah will be launched into the water at the beginning of the following week, depending on the availability of the low-loading trailer to take her from the Covey Island workshop at Petite Riviere to the quay at Lunenburg. The low loader has recently had a problem and they are waiting for spare parts which means that we are a bit delayed. When she is in the water, her masts will be mounted and she will be rigged and static system tested during the last week of May. A naming ceremony is to be held on Sunday 1st June and her three-day commissioning trials are expected to begin immediately after – that means that we will be off out to sea to try everything out! If there are only minor adjustments required after the commissioning trials and the weather is set fair we would look to set sail across the Atlantic at the end of the first week in June. Will it all go as smoothly as planned? Well, we have had a few delays already, so please see our blog for how we are getting on.
