Dawg , not a good start...to a long trip...if things start falling apart in the 1st 15 miles. Glad you're ok !! + 1 for life jackets, jacklines and tethers
So now what? What's the plan for the headsail? Weather's not looking much better for tomorrow to block.
Is this boat and crew ready for a 400 mile ocean trip in November? Discretion is the better part of valor. Rest up.
