Next Step - 14th March 2020
Another slow start to the day with not a lot of wind and some dark skies threatening rain. It looked like a squall was approaching during my morning watch, so I reefed the main and genoa. But it did not arrive it only rained a little and passed to our south. Out goes the fishing line, we may be lucky today you never know! In the late morning it clouded over and we did get a bit of rain. Unfortunately, we had an issue with the genoa reefing furler which involved taking down the genoa re-furling the reefing line and putting the sail back up again, all a bit of a palaver with a lumpy sea! Anyway, we hope that it is now sorted. As the afternoon progressed the wind began to increase and our progress improved. Oh dear, still no fish so tonight we had one of Nicole's very nice carbonara's for supper. Hopefully, the wind will stay for the rest of the weekend.
