L'Eau Commotion making good time
Poled out Yankee jib to port and asymmetric sheeted to the boom between Cape Town and St Helena in steady trades of around 18 knots.
St. Helena
Errant Wave
A wave wiped off the solar panels and wind generator so called it quits and headed for Stanley.
Emergency Steering
The pin in a sheave failed so I installed the emergency tiller driven by the Windpilot.
