C'est la Vie has undergone a total transformation. She was redecorated in green to suit her new name. New sails were added to the outfit. New gadgets were installed and she is seaworthy at last. The authorities allowed others to use her name, which forced the renaming of C'est la Vie to Ntombi. The young girl has grown a couple of feet, and the height increased with the breadth. She is not as young anymore, but her experience sailing from South Africa back and forth in the Atlantic to Mediterranean and Caribbean seas, Panama channel and crossing the Pacific to New Zealand give us confidence that she will be able to sail to Fiji this season.
