Bertie goes up the mast

Bertie had his first taste of going up the mast today.  He took his camera up with him but the battery was flat, so no pictures I am afraid. 
There was no sign of the missing wind instruments, which we hoped might just have fallen down inside the mast.  I will have to find a Brookes and Gatehouse distributor somewhere in Las Palmas in order to replace them. 
The deck floodlight blew on the way down to Las Palmas.  Bertie brought the bulb down so that we can look for a replacement.
