Saturday 7th Jan

We are anchored in a busy bay off an island at the top of Indonesia - Pulau Weh. We arrived at 9pm after another engine dominated day. I was tempted to hoist the Parasailor once more in marginal light wind (4kN apparent)and it filled and flapped, flapped and filled and somehow developed a tear near the port clew. Hoisting is relatively straightforward but dropping needs 4 hands to prevent snags or send the sail overboard (it was a close call today as I let go of the halyard and just managed to catch it again as the snuffer with chute headed over the side. More practice and a system for controlled drop required.
