Each winter the yachts are all lifted out of the water and undergo an extensive refit programme.  This is absolutely vital in order to keep the boats in excellent condition, both mechanically and cosmetically.  For those who own your own boat, you will understand the amount of work that is required to keep a boat looking and performing great.  For those that don't, it is hard to express in words the work involved.  A great effort by all those involved over the winter.
