Some of you have probably noticed that Priscilla, the BMYC Committee Boat, has been absent for a while. She is undergoing a major refit in Newhaven Port at the Sussex Yachts Ltd Boatyard.

Some of the works include the replacement of the deck and making the cockpit self draining, fitting new windows, a hull and superstructure repaint as well as replacement of deck fittings and new signalling mast. The heads are being refurbished and cabin painted in a light grey. Some images are shown below for anybody who is interested in the progress.

There are also plans to rename her, an activity that will involve consuming lots of alcohol to appease the sea god – Neptune. Watch this space!

Here are some more pictures showing the new shining hull!
