Sticking Headsail
We have problems with the front sail / genoa at the moment, since having the front stay replaced the furling gear (bit that wraps up the sail when the wind gets too strong or it is not needed) keeps jamming. Not sure why. I have been up the mast three times now and with the swaying and lurching my arms are looking rather bruised. We can manage as we are, but it makes things a lot more difficult. We must fix in Trinidad.
 
The Continuing Toilet Saga
An un-named member of the crew, not having perfected the art of tastefully disposing of toilet paper via the port hope, delivered three sheets to the wind yesterday, neither folded our scrunched. Unfortunately, for another crew member in the cockpit, they were hit and wrapped. Neither wish to be named!
 
A Reversing Brazil Current Gives WD a Boost
Hopefully the Guiana Current will boost us too! Watch your stern Rival 38A, Luner Quest here we come, twenty miles closer in 24 hours.
 
Miles travelled in the last 24 hours: 147 miles
Miles to go: 2085 miles
