Not much happening. Still adverse conditions for getting a nice sail in. Today we had some minor damage to some sailing hardware which will need to be repaired on arrival in Las Palmas. Also, the asymmetric kite which would have been ideal for sailing on a very broad reach, has too long a luff, so cannot be used without doing damage to the pulpit. Will have to have a few stern words with the sail loft...
Apart from that, not much to report. Just very frustrating not to be able to get much sailing in. Reminder to oneself, do not get a crew who are pressed for time...
