Sailing at last

After installing the trampoline we had just three days left to go for a sail, just enough time for a quick trip up to Carriacou and back.
The sailing was fine except that it rained for the whole day we were anchored at Sandy Island.
The jib that we left rigged for the two years is looking the worse for wear. (It was white once upon a time)
On the way up the smoke alarm went off in the port engine room. The turbo was overheating and needs replacing. Fortunately the starboard engine was OK and the port engine ran long enough for us to manoeuvre back into our berth in Port Louis, which involved pivoting on the spot with a couple of feet clearance at each end .
