Janus - Saturday 9th
Our final day preparations. Provisions delivered on boardstowed away. Oyster Rigger team conveniently found what appears to be a 6inch crack in the mast adjacent to the first spreader in line with the mast fairing - caused a bit of concern but we were reliably informed they were 99% confident it was cosmetic.We marked the crack length and will check in Cape Verde!Janus is otherwise looking very good and the crew looking forward to the sail. 25kt NNE winds and favourable wave period 13 - 15 sec and clear skies. Low likelihood of squalls. All prepared and looking forward to the departure tomorrow!Kind regardsBob James. read more...
