Mainsail Bent On and Photos

 
 
 

Alongside Ushuaia
Weather: Sunny, calm, mild

Today I finished bending on the new mainsail.  It has been a perfect day for it with the sun shining and now wind.  The saillooks pretty good with only one problem, namely the reef cringles are too short and won’t fit over the horns on the gooseneck. I shall have to make some grommets up to overcome this problem, a bit of a nuisance but no big deal.

All is well.

Scored some tuna at last. The skipper seems happy, sort of. I have a full tummy. I feel sort of …. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
