The cane train


Running past Vuda Point Marina is a narrow gauge railroad. I thought it was abandoned but it is very much in use. It is the (sugar) cane trait. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

The New Backstay

We rigged a two running backstays, took down the backstay and brought it to shore. We measured, installed the last insulator connector, and headed back out to

Via Inmarsat:

Skud running all day. Dawn wind 6 knots. We got up to 4 knots with apparent wind shifted all the way to thebow. Could not turn south west for more consistent trades without going into irons. We sighted a whale and a pod of juvenile dolphins. We took advantage of the light air and flat seas to do a load of laundry. High temps spawned squals with winds to 20 knots and rain. Waves kicked up to 5 feet. Was able to head west but course SW was very rough. Tonigit beautiful sky with some residual squalls around Reboot. We go into the night with 50% jib and no main at 5.5 knots. Fair winds and following seas 🙂 Please note your reply is limited to 160 Latin characters or approximately 135 for non-Latin characters.
