We had a nice sailing forecast; light northeast winds to take us to Staniel Cay for our next visitor’s arrival. Thankfully we could share a relaxing, sunny sailing day with Bruce and Kathy. Just one minor problem…our main sail was torn. No sweat, right. Brian and I went topside with Bruce to change out our spare main sail.
Uh oh! The spare main sail didn’t actually fit in the track on our mast. UGH! Well, good thing we discovered this glitch. The spare main sail doesn’t have track cars but instead has a rope to run up the track which is a bit too narrow for our track. Another project on the to-do list, add track cars to spare main sail. Thank goodness the wind was in our favor today! The genoa brought us from Cambridge Cay to Staniel Cay.
Bruce drove us into Staniel Cay under motor and we anchored just outside of the town to enable a short dinghy ride to the airport. It had already been a wonderful day and very soon more fun to arrive!
