DAY 2 – Still working
LOCATION – PEMBROKE, WALES
CREW – ME, STEVE
WIND – NORTHERLY LIGHT
WEATHER – PATCHY CLOUD AND SUN
With the list of jobs not completed we cracked on at 7am, the main jobs involved worked at the top of the mast and with my ass too big for the bosuns chair (and my ass being afraid of heights) Steve was the one to go up and I had the honour of lifting his ample frame to the the top of the 16 meter mast!
So after discovering muscles I thought had been replaced with congealed white wine years ago we got the mast jobs done, checked the tender, tidied the boat, did the washing up (no Aysun, there is no dishwasher!)
A few days before I arrived Steve had had a rigger check all the rigging lines on the boat, they had all been a little loose so they were tightened and balanced and in the process the frame of the boat was deformed and now 2 doors won’t close 🙂
Stocked up on provisions at the local village shop and started to make plans to set off with an aim of getting from Pembroke to Falmouth in 24 hours, making the lions share of the journey at night so we can arrive at Lands End in early morning daylight to make navigation up the South Cornwall coast easier.
