Left anchorage 07.00hrs, on Friday, for the last few days in Jolly Harbour we have had a good steady breeze heading us straight to Nevis (Neevis), Chris was up the mast repairing the inner head sail so we could use both fore sails in the traditional trade wind rig. This morning, no wind! Main sail to steady us against the swell and motored out of Jolly harbour and continued to motor.
Have to admit to losing the main sail halyard up the mast, seems I didn't hank on properly, thankful no damage and hoisted sail using topping lift.
In convoy with Balu, Thomas caught a Tuna, came alongside just to show us it!! We of course don't think catching fish is very fair on the fish. It has been blowing from the North East since we arrived making it quite a rolly anchorage and not good for swimming to clean hulls, so waiting for winds to ease.
