More English Braids onboard!


Justin MainsheetJustin and I spent the day putting some of the new halyards in and sorting out the mainsheet strop that we broke during the Length of Britain record.

Still some more rope to come though which will need a bit more work to put in as they are the 2:1 halyards from the top of the mast, so it requires a climb to the top to attach one end to the mast.

Lots of other jobs still to do, including fixing the Solent jib to the forestay – we are just waiting for the cover to arrive so that it can be protected from the UV while it is furled. Again it needs a little trip up the mast to attach the head of the sail!
