It’s been a busy day on the magnificent sailing machine Imagine your Korea. While the winds have been light, we have had much to do.

Thierry has been busy doing Boson things above and below decks and we sent him aloft to deal with some of our halyard issues, thankfully all is now good. Below decks and below the water line, Thierry, who has been a bit of an action man, was also recovering lines and repairing them to enable us to continue our passage with a full inventory of sheets and halyards.

All in all I would describe today as predominantly an action-man Thierry day. The great news is that the boat is better and more in shape than it was before.

After a difficult spinnaker drop caused by some anti -chafe protection being frayed, we had to drop the kite straight down the forward hatch (not normal practice). So we sent Carolla aloft to replace one of the two spinnaker halyards while we were underway. This is normally a quick job, but she seemed to want to stop at every spreader, no, every opportunity to take as selfie!

Thank you to all those of you who have responded to my last blog regarding our Unicef activity, we have received some donations already and I have learnt of at least one tea party underway to raise some funds. Just to remind you, the site for just giving is https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/imagine-your-korea19-20

Tomorrow we look forward to stronger winds and a faster passage. At 10 knots we are in the marina at about 2000 on Sunday.

Normal love and regards,

P.S. Thanks Dad for the contribution to Unicef, hope my bros and sister can follow.
