Log Entry – Thursday

Having established a means by which we can update our blog (wordpress with postie plugin) using both the internet and radio links we have good intentions of making regular entries.

There have been no favourable winds this week for us to depart heading South and its currently very wet !

There are still bits and pieces to sort including a new spinnaker halyard, tripping lines, repaired lee cloth and a bridle for the stern anchor gear.

We also hope to illustrate with photographs some of the work undertaken whilst out of the water.

Any log entry made using ‘Airmail’ software automatically adds our position on the post 🙂
