Oops a hole

We noticed last night we had managed to tare a hole in our big jib - just the sail we need today!
At first light we had it dryed off, repaired and flying within 15 minutes. Just as well as there is very little wind today and this sail is vital if we are to move at all.
The wind direction is constantly changing and without wind instruments we cannot use Georgie (the auto helm). Matt is helming at the moment, we will alternate every 30 mins until a more reliable breeze developes later in the day.

PS. I'll tell you about Georgie, the third member of the team later.....
