With the parted halyard dominating thoughts and driving decisions, I was reminded just how lucky I have been by this.
By far and away the best time for that halyard to fail was in broad daylight, light winds, relatively calm seas, and at a time when the use of that sail would not be critical any time in the near future.
It is a problem yet to be solved. There have been many and there will be more. Only a fool would think, or worse yet , hope otherwise. I have been expecting something bigger to break. I just didn’t expect a wire halyard.
Consider it a lesson learned. Moreover, it is all part of the fun. Imagine if you will how good it will feel to figure this one out!
