Geronimo is in Palma de Mallorca, waiting for the new main sail to arrive, for the delivery crew to arrive and for the wind direction to improve.

- The main sail was supposed to arrive tomorrow, on October 31st, but that will not happen. The sail maker is now talking about Wednesday 2nd or Thursday 3rd of November - let's see when we will have a new main sail onboard...

- The crew will arrive Wednesday evening (3 pers) and Thursday midday (1 pers)

- The favourable winds do not look like they will arrive at all. Southwesterly winds up to 30 knots+ is what right now is forecasted for Friday and Saturday, Sunday the wind is supposed to turn towards westerly...

Anyway, in the mean time Hasse and Anders are busy getting the boat ready for the coming trips and installing new hardware as well as upgrading existing hardware and systems. As well as keeping the boat clean and shining...



In the picture Hasse is polishing the toilet seat hinges - very important for the safety of the boat and the crew :)
