Furler problems 100mi offshore

Back to Vigo, Spain to evaluate and repair. The forewardmost furler for the Yankee jib has seized up in the upper portions of the mechanism. We were fortunate to be able to get it furled with the help of a cabin top winch. Hopefully the forcing did no extra harm. This is the anchorage for tonight, the islands at the entrance to Rio de Vigo.

Boat Birds

We had a couple of small birds (swallows?) come aboard while we were 100 miles offshore. They didn’t seem like seabirds, and seemed to come aboard to get out of the wind. They made themselves quite at home.
