Ostrea - big squall


We are currently sailing in real brochure like tradewind conditions, goosewinging towards st lucia. We have a reefed main as we ripped her partially by breaking one of the vertical sailbattens and that came right throught the sail because of that. This is the 5th time this happens during our trip so we really need to think of another system for the future. Yesterda ynight was a bit of a rough one with one big squall that took 3 hours with lots of rain, wind and lightning. As soon as we see lightning close to the boat we put all are spare electronic instruments in the oven (cage of faraday) and then we need to remember before we start baking bread
in the morning.......
We are going to have a beer tonight to celebrate we have less then 500 miles to go to st Lucia! We keep you posted.
