0930hrs: Depart Uvala Stupica, Otok Zirje.


1600hrs: Anchored at Zaljev Komiza, Otok Vis. Headwinds all the way from Otok Zirje. Motor sail and tack. About an hour out from Komiza, the main halyard gave way (shackle connected halyard to top swivel failed) and the main sail dropped. Major drama given winds of 17knts. We gathered the sail as best we could and continued under motor. Also noted shackle had cracked the main saloon glass when it fell. Tony and I folded up the main as best we could. Will have to organise a rigger in Split.
