Owner Bruce phoned me to ask if I would do a recovery mission which included setting up the jury rig with storm sails. At first a little reluctant, but realising that it needed to get back to a larger port for re-rigging, I agreed to take on the adventure being very careful with the weather. As it turned out, apart from adverse current the whole way, the sea and winds were favourable. With two new crew members, Ray and Bernie, it ended up being a most enjoyable time and I thank them both very much for the great job they did and look forward to being able to offer them the next trip on a yacht which doesn’t have “mast envy”

Thank you also to Bruce for the brilliant support both on Flinders and along the way.
