Day’s Run – 11 July, 2016

Another day working through the Atlantic, to the North this time. Breeze filled in westerly in the morning and has been a steady Force 5 for most of the day.  All of the safety gear got a quick overhaul: as we know we will need it again, we must keep it in top notch condition.  With the fresh weather we take some time to do some extra cleaning jobs and take any opportunity when the wind lightens up to set more sail.

SHIP’S WORK: Clean aloha deck overhead; replace chafe gear on forward topmast shroud legs; continue shaping MONOMOY main boom; repairs to Lower Topsail ‘C’.
