Lots of work

We had to do some repairs on the mast last week, not a big deal, but the mast had to be pulled for that. The preparations alone took two days (getting the sails down, taking the boom off, disconnecting all cables, taking the instruments off the mast, removing the mast collar, etc.).
Everything went well with the repair, but now we’re busy getting everything back in place again. Additionally we got black marks from the bumper tyres in the harbour all over one side of the hull and the fenders, so some cleaning is also needed.

It looks like a weather window towards the Australes might come up at the beginning of next week, so we’re in a hurry to get Pitufa back into sailing mode.
