Today the weather was really nice and calm so we profited from that by doing a small repair on the genoa luff. It had a small rip in the usual spot just at the start of the fore-stay groove. Now it has been reinforced by a bit of kevlar so it should be OK.

We also got the dinghy engine running perfectly well now, after a few days of work which ended up being a rather large overhaul.

So we’re finally ready for some excursions on the island. Now we just need some suitable weather. But tomorrow does not look so promising. Northerly winds are not good for the anchorage we are targeting for our first excursion.
