Cleaning day for Magic Carpet 3

Just arrived home from the PalmaVela 2016 regatta which ended Sunday, Magic Carpet 3, a Wally 100' and one the world's most famous racing boats, gets a thorough cleaning in the Vieux Port at St. Tropez: jacklines and foul gear gets hung out to dry in the foredeck, three large cases of all kinds of cleaners and soaps are brought dockside and onboard, wet-dry vacs and electric buffers are readied, and assorted mops, brushes and water-hoses lie about.  When your racing crew is a couple of dozen sailors, it's probably not too hard to find a handful to clean up afterwards.  

On Peregrinus, though, the sailing crew is down to two, so it's always quite a challenge for the Admiral to rope up cleaning crew after passages!
