We were having a great blast down from Tuskar Rock when a challenge presented itself. We had wind up to 31 kts and were putting in a second reef when the boom – mainsheet attachment failed. We had to slow down for several hours to get control of the situation and set up a temporary solution. We are now back on our way.
In all of that, it has been another spectactular day with a lot of wild life including the first sighting of a baeleric shearwater amongst many graceful seabirds.
Tuskar Rock was spectactular. We hope to see it in the daytime next year.
