Another glorious sunny day in Las Palmas.
Today went through whole Category 1 safety check as layed out by World Sailing to see we are in compliance. Noticed just 1 things needed doing, adding 1.5 litres of water to the grab bag. Hopefully all other items can be blagged as ARC and World Sailing not completely lined up and as we are in the race division, just ensuring latter complied with.
Chandlery here confirmed can get gooseneck toggle, maybe here Tuesday. Replaced lost rope bag starboard rail. One minor job has turned big the moving up of the Satcom Antenna. The coax connector to the antenna has a seized collar and now not tight connection to coax. Replacement coax connector to be sourced.
The boat we shall move to another part of marina in the morning.
Must go for a beer to cool down and celebrate Jean's ( John wife) birthday.
Happy Birthday Jean
