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!
