Ca Canny - Days 12-15- Still going!
Not much at all to report from days 12-15, just that we tried to head further south to avoid a predicted calm spot- which we seem to have done successfully.
However, yesterday (day 14) we had yet another problem with our spinnaker which wouldn't come down due to twisting. This meant that again Alan had to go up the mast at sea which is always daunting but by now he's a pro! So, that issue was resolved fairly quickly, luckily the sea was calm enough that he wasn't bashed around quite as much as the first time he tried it this trip.
We have also incurred some significant damage to our main sail, with four broken batons and the top of the sail very shredded, which seems to be affecting our progress.
However, morale is still high and we are all very excited to arrive in St Lucia (preferably in time for our flights!).
