Wind instrument

Last night saw strong winds and thunderstorms. Apparently at some point my Garmin wind instrument decided to depart Reboot. Very frustrating but not quite as bad as when the radar dome decided to fall from the mast to the deck. Sailing is always an adventure.  Fair winds and following seas:)

Local Help

This morning we were on shore when a strong thunderstorm came through the anchorage. We were concerned about our boats dragging. The very heavy rain obscured our vision and the rough surf suggested it was not a good time to hop into the dinghy to check. After several hours the skies finally cleared. We headed out to check on the boats. One was missing having dragged. Where was she? Nuzzled up against and tied to one of the large fishing boats. Apparently some of the locals had rescued her and secured her until the owners could come. These kinds of selfless acts help restore faith in the kindness of people. Fair winds and following seas 🙂
