Early start to make the most of the day for Cathy's long drive back to Atlanta. Quick trip to the local store for provisions and then away.
Satellite phone SIM card inserted but handset LCD screen not functioning. So unable to unlock SIM! Rushed call to suppliers to ship a replacement in time for Mon/Tues. Genoa furlex roller dismantled to service and top/tail the furling line (to remove small chaffing form the system). What a system - easy when done once, most perplexing the first time. Nevertheless, bearings greased and re-assembled successfully (eventually)!
Matt arrives as our 3rd crew. Evening stroll to Tidewater marina and "Fish and Slips"
