Squalls surrounding the boat you never knew which one would move towards the boat

Doldrums (not oil but reflections of the clouds)

This Cruise ship came in so on went the good shirt and shorts and I joined them on the island tour. There was no head count.

When I needed sleep, I set the radar alarm. I got good regular sleep except if there was traffic or squalls as these set off the alarm and there was no point sleeping then.

Simon-

Beautiful photos... ;) How did the Dutchman Boom Brake work out on the trip for you??

SimonV 11-04-2008 10:12 AM

Hi SD. even though on one occasion it ripped a block off the toe rail in a down wind jibe I would recomend one to everyone. Maybe should not be used as a preventer a lighter line would have saved the block and the break would have slowed the boom down.

Need better backing plates for the blocks. :)
