350nm to go, ETA Tortola is now 10:15 Monday morning, 231113
The wind has died down a little bit so we shook out the reefs and are now flying full sails again.
A little rain shower passed by just south of us, we saw it coming and reefed the sails, it’s a good thing, the wind’s picked up to 22 knots.
The reef one line is now solidly compromised, the sheath has split in two and a delicate core is now completely exposed. We may have to abandon reef 1 for the rest of the trip.
After the storm passed it took all of the wind with it. So Chuck and I took advantage of the cull to repair the sail bag.
