July 14, 2010 No major damage, but....
"It was an eventful evening (7/13) and day (7/14). It turns out that laptops don't like to share in celebratory drinks, even non-alcoholic ones (sparkling cider).
This morning, we took care of a few important items of boat business:
rig for a gybe (hadn't been done since we popped one of the guys)
Replace the masthead external halyard block just in case we need it
extract a broken batten from the main
Those last two required a trip up the mast. When we get to Kaneohe and have bandwidth, there are some good pictures and a video to post.
Having gybed over at lunchtime, we're pretty much on the port layline for Kaneohe and homing in.
This is a great crew- noone has found anything to complain about and we've gotten the tune on the boat very refined."
