Noon Update- July 11, 2018

So far it has been a floaty spinnaker day. After a MacGyver repair of the sheave at the top of the spinnaker sleeve (the spinnaker is contained in a large sock sleeve that controls the sail until deployed. This is very important for the simple reason that this is a Big Ass Sail that deserves respect). On the food front, Mattia made a wonderful couscous with vegetables last night for dinner and plans are afoot to have the first of Team MATDAN’s TWO GIANT FISH, tonight. He used satellite time to call his cousin (a chef) and his Momma for advice on preparing the tuna tonight. The verdict is Tuna with Pasta. Yum. As for the watch schedule. We are using the legendary ‘Fink Astral Rotation Timetable’ as designed by my sister Laurie. This FART schedule involves single person watches during the day and 2 person watches overnight with a hour overlap so that 5 people do the night. This schedule has allowed for 7 hours on watch and 17 hours off watch. Absolutely brilliant and full credit goes to Laurie for hatching this plan. That’s all for now. Noon to noon mileage was 124 and life is good.
