Oyster Belle - Log Day 23 - RIP spinnaker

After another day’s hard work pulling us through the ocean towards our destination St Lucia, our trusted thread bear, longest serving sail, our colorful spinnaker finally gave up the ghost. With the recovery sock no longer able to douse the sail we had no other option than to ditch it on the deck, inadvertently catching a wave causing it to split and therefore leading to its untimely demise. Farewell trusted friend!
The final couple of days are now on white sails only, setting back our arrival in St Lucia a little but still hope to make landfall late tomorrow afternoon.
We are now researching the options for a new spinnaker with Yorkshire and tea close to our hearts. Yorkshire tea are now firm favorites for our next sponsorship deal with their logo emblazoned on our new spinnaker flying high and proud.
