One of the things I had planned to do in Stanley was remove two cheek blocks from the top of the mast. They were left over from the old lazy jacks and they were a constant snag hazard to both the main and spinnaker halyards.

So, they have to come off but that meant climbing the mast.

I went up this morning in the relatively flat seas of this latest becalming. It seemed flat but I am hanging on for dear life. It was something I hope not to have to do it again!

Here is photographic proof that I did it. And this email this proof that I survived!

    In weather like today having a fellow partner would make the difference of the world.

    Heavy weather conditions are great only when you have enough energy to enjoy it. I wish you the time of your life.
