Yesterday's rig check gave us a scare, the forestay eye had one of its 2 bolts worked loose. The rigger was concerned that it may have been cracked. We lowered the jib and inspected the part carefully and it is OK. Great relief all round.
Today we had our safety inspection. Very interesting and informative time with Chris Tibbs. We have to get 2 more white flares but apart from that we were given a clean bill of health. We are all very pleased!
Those of you being battered by gales will be amused to hear that we are having rain!! Also forecast for tomorrow.
Provisioning and engine / genset oil change are next on the list.
All best wishes - Matthew
