Boulogne is a nice town, the marina is reasonably priced, and the weather forecast looks like beating to windward in strong winds (as usual on this trip so far) but this time in rain:
Conclusion: We stay here for a while. It seems the low over Scotland will be moving away during Friday, which gives us nicer winds then.
Time to fix some of that collateral damage, then. I am sending a grateful thought to Hamel Sails: The first webbing they made for the main tack was too small, so they made a new larger one. I did save the smaller one, and now it comes in very handy as a replacement for the broken one. It is much wider though, so I have to redesign the attachment a little.
