Been a lovely sunny day so hatches are open and the deck is covered in drying gear. Don’t think anything survived a dousing. Had a good chance to survey the damage, poor old moonshiner took quite a battering. I’m told the Azores yards are excellent and good at quick turnarounds so don’t think there should be anything that delays us too long. Will see. They sound like a great place to hang out and explore.
The miracle of the day has been finding dads phone. We assumed it went over the side when we were knocked down but apparently not. He was filming at the time! I can’t send the video as it’s too big over the satellite. I’ve taken a couple of stills form the video. The last few are truly terrifying, showing moonshiner 45 degrees upside down hurtling down the wave.
