RTT to Become Official Home

Sacramento River, CA This month it's official: Rikki-tikki-tavi will become Clark and Nina¹s true home. After selling their land home of twenty years within mere days of advertising its availability, they will hand over the keys to U Street¹s new owner on August 17. Rikki-tikki has been very patiently floating at his dock on the Sacramento River awaiting the day when he would be called into action. Still without the passive propulsion system known as "sails", Rikki-tikki-tavi remains a motor vessel. The Captain and First Mate have been communicating with numerous sailmakers in a quest to determine the best assortment and builder of said large expanses of Dacron. The final decision is yet to be made. We will remain in the Sacramento area for at least another month, setting up a living space in the ³studio² at the Rutgers Way location. Rikki-tikki also requires a few more installations to be ready for departure (like those aforementioned sails). August 18th is Clark¹s birthday, coincidentally, so we have a bit of celebrating to do­ two milestones! We hope everyone¹s summer has been enjoyable. Ours has certainly been eventful, if not downright hectic, and we look forward to years of more leisurely times ahead. The cruising life beckons. Plans are indefinite but we are working toward moving Rikki-tikki-tavi to the Bay Area sometime in September. We¹ll keep you posted. Please contact us via email at this address until we determine how to best handle Rikki-tikki's communications. Happy trails, Clark and Nina s/v Rikki-tikki-taviCC40 Trimaran
