Day’s Run – 1 January, 2019!

Tuesday January 1st, 2019

Happy New Year! Last night’s celebrations were a huge hit. Today we haven’t wasted any time getting back into the swing of things and starting the year off on a good foot. It’s been a productive first day of 2019. Thus far, this morning’s on duty watch hauled out the fore lower topsail that was sent to deck yesterday onto the quarterdeck for our sailmaker John and his apprentice this week, Ted. After reviewing the sail and examining what work needs to be done, they got to work on the new spanker, which is looking more and more like a sail every day! In the rigging department, Liz laid aloft to change out the old foresail gaskets for new ones. Anne-Laure and her apprentice this week, Nic, changed out the main upper topsail buntlines, and overhauled blocks, their grommets and redid the seizings. The scullery team, Tyler and Niko, dove into the hold, reviewing and noting every dry food item we have onboard making a precise inventory prior to re-provisioning. As we inch closer to land preparations are beginning to be made for port. Knowing what we have in the hold greatly helps when we provision in port, making a shopping list for 37 people for a month is the next step!
