The Curse Of the Spinaker Halyard has struck again. Externally rigged halyards have been replaced by internal ones. Jack and Ben made trips up the mast to set up the new rigging. Jack had time for a leisurely birdseye photograph while it became apparent that Ben requires practice in Bosun's G-string control. He hopes this will be next trip. Paul managed to drop Ben's camera as he passed it down quickly from the mast head - but all was well. Ben prepared for the trip up the mast with a lie in with the gear.
Despite this good progress was being made until light winds on Friday morning. We are encouraged that we are now amongst the back markers.
Matt the master trollerman landed a second Dorado which meant fresh fish and cabbage curry, curteousy of Paul & Ben.
