Our new toy for the summer

20 feet of fun.    A rather elderly Flying Fifteen, FFurious FForties, sail number HKG 3469.
All we have to do is patch up some collision damage on the deck and then sail it through the harbour from Causeway Bay and across to Lantau.   Now that is going to be an interesting trip.    Will need to time the journey to maximise the tides so they push from right to left to get me out of the harbour quickly and then hopefully a reach all the way over.

As soon as I am over the shipping lanes and long as I keep heading West the route is relatively safe.    There a few pictures below that I have found on the internet.
