I wasnt going to write today due to being a bit p**sed off about the
destroyed kite but what the hey.
We had our first crack at flying the kite overnight last night and it didnt
end well. Conditions were difficult for the crew as it was pretty dark with
lots of cloud and few stars. Any way we thought we had finally cracked it
and everyone seemed to be getting the hang of it when the kite just
disintegrated. I guess the continual flogging did the trick and now its in
bits. The crew reacted well and we did eventually get it down although we
had a stuggle as it was pretty badly messed up with the anti wrap device -
work that one out!
Moral is back up and so is the masthead kite and we are heading in roughly
the right direction although much further south than I wanted to be.
Bertie One Design had yet another foray up the rig to retrieve the errent
spi halyard and sort out the masthead tricolour, she seems to like it so we
are planning littl excursions for her daily.
