At 10:00 it was time for the rally boats to depart and head for the start line. It took until 10:45 before the bridges opened. Thankfully there wasn’t much wind as eight boats jockeyed for position in the small harbour basin. Finally they went out, only to have Danica and Chao Lay return. Carl, the boat electrician came onboard and sorted out both their problems. Then we invited him to see why our radar wasn’t functioning, but alas, he was unable to find what is wrong with it. We made a decision to start on Saturday, the 11th , without the radar working, and head directly to St. Helena.image0.
