The sun was out and the wind was around 12 to 15 so we had a good sail out to Rough Towers , the boat was flying along.

 We were checking the reefing procedure and found that there were some lines on round the wrong way , so these were corrected and then the  support for the Vang broke , a quick call to Fox’s , and a call to David Butt on his mobile, he  asked us to take a picture of the broken part .and send it to him and he said he would ring us back in 10 mins. When he rang back he said if we met him at Shotley Holding pontoon he would fit the part for us , he was there to take our line and completed the job in around the hour. Well and a big thank you to Fox’s.
