New Shrouds Up and On Our Way!

We finally got our new Dynex Dux shrouds and put them up (with a little bit of hassle because of the length, but more on that in another post).

Good thing too – when I got the old shroud down I could see that it had already pulled out about a 3 millimeters. Imagine if I hadn’t spotted the crack and we kept sailing! Kaboom! We could well have had a dramatic mast overboard situation. To see what that would look like, take a look at the videos on this page: Mast Overboard and other sailing disasters. They are very interesting and very instructive!

So, after another wet and windy storm, today it is sunny, the wind and tide are right, the shrouds are up, and we are on our way. We now start to work our way East, aiming for Cartenega where we will leave Life Part 2 for the winter.

First stop today is Fuengirola, just past Marbella, where we shall hopefully meet up with internet marketing buddy, Mark Thompson.
