It’s a wrap for the virtual attempt!

We are sailing under the GG bridge tomorrow! It’ll be exactly seven months at sea. Link to virtual attempt here.

There haven’t been many new developments:

  • we got the mainsail repaired (the top batten pocket had been ripped) and checked all batten cars. We discovered that the headboard card is damaged. The pin/axle connecting the two cars holding the head was bent: how is a mystery. And the mainsail cover got a lot of love too.
  • we got the gennaker repaired as the leech started to come apart.
  • we got the bottom cleaned up.
  • I did go sailing a couple of times and managed to put the flying fish spinnaker in the water. I also have concerns again about one of the hydro-generator, which made an unexpected sound at speeds above 7-8 kts.
  • we signed up for the YRA Blue water bash next weekend.
  • I’ve reached out to the WSSRC who is willing to grant me a one year extension.

It was interesting to follow Ryan Finn as he rounded Cape Horn going West.

That’s all I have for you.
