Day’s Run – 4 February 2019

Nice sailing day at sea. Almost halfway across the Mozambique Channel. We had to send down the main royal yard. It cracked while bracing. The Mate led the gang of Jack and Anders aloft in a fine piece of seamanship getting that yard down the proper way. We are going to make a new one out of our spare timbers. Later we had a group discussion on our passage planning and weather we are expecting.
