part 2

After some time a big gust of wind hits and it unravels almost all the way.

Up jumps The Captain for about the third time now, and decides he will untie all the ropes and we will attempt to let it out.
So once again up he goes harness on, with luck we had a full moon so it was almost like daylight, after what seemed like a lifetime, with me stressing that he was going to fall overboard he yells to start winding her in, man was this tough going the strain on that thing was crazy but out she flys, yes one more thing fixed.
So it's now about 10pm The Captain had been awake since midnight am sure he was asleep before his head hit the pillow.
But this boat was not finished yet she had to throw in one more thing before we could rest, the preventer that holds the main sail in place to stop it swinging from side to side, well the shackle snapped, man I tell you The Captain was so not happy, but he managed to do a quick repair and will have a proper look at it in the morning.

What happened to things coming in three's ?

Well tomorrow is another day.
