Repairs

The downwind passage from the Gambier to Tahanea with quite a windy start put lots of strain on the material. We bent a stanchion and one of the genoa poles actually ripped the pole track out of the mast (a 15 cm long bit, we could still use the other pole). Christian has already cut out the bent bit and will move the remaining piece up to get it fully functional again.
The garden under the sprayhood also suffered some damage. For the first time ever we got some salty spray in and both the thai basil and the basil died from ‘salt burn’. The bok choy has fully recovered from the 3 m plunge dive into the galley though ;-)
In the evening we had a beach BBQ with old friends (Ednbal and Raynad) and the other 3 boats that have anchored here in the SE corner to sit out a maramu (SE wind). It’s amazing how busy the Tuamotus are at this time of the year when the fleet sailboats rushes through French Polynesia on the way across
the Pacific towards New Zealand.

:de_start “Reparaturen”

Der Vorwindtörn von den Gambier nach Tahanea mit einem recht windigen Start hat das Material ziemlich beansprucht. Wir haben eine Relingstütze verbogen und einer der Genuabäume hat tatsächlich die Schiene für den Baum aus dem Mast gerissen (ein 15 cm langes Stück, wir konnten den anderen Baum nach wie vor verwenden). Christian hat das verbogene Stück bereits herausgeschnitten, wird die Schiene versetzen, sodass sie wieder voll einsatzbereit ist.
Der Garten unter der Sprayhood hat auch gelitten. Zum insgesamt ersten Mal ist etwas Gischt so weit gekommen und hat das Thai Basilikum und das Basilikum ‘verbrannt’. Der Bok Choy
