A. Today a medium trip, not a lot of wind again.

Cleared customs, which moved office, now at an internet cafe, at the total costs if 1 euro, shockingly simple, quick and cheap. In and Out.

Strolled a bit on the main island of Les Saintes.

Then G hoists A once again up to fix the lazyjack lines. This time at anchor, and we need to time it such that the wake of ferries and other boats is not going to scare A too much. A concludes the blocks in the spreaders, where the lazy jack lines go through are getting soft, the plastic piece that is. This allows the line to push the guiding plastic aside and jam the block. We need to get new blocks, and for now, adjust the lazyjacklines and tighten them, we should not need to adjust them if they are set perfectly :)

At noon we leave for another motorsail, from the very south west of Guadeloupe to the very northwest, deshaies. We remember that bay from February last year, see old blog :(
