We have taken the boat out for some short trips up to Annapolis and
down to the Rhode River and we have sailed on just the jib. Everything
appears to be working (is that the kiss of death?).
Memorial Day weekend.
Saturday :Went to Shaw Bay on the Eastern shore and we had wine
tasting on board Romper. Had a great time and did not need dinner when
we returned to our boat. The next morning was very slow !!!!
Sunday : We decided to have a cocktail hour on our boat for the few
of us that stayed in Shaw Bay.
Monday. Sailed back early.
Also had a day out with work friends. We went to Cantlers for lunch then
sailed almost home when the webbing at the top of the mainsail broke and
the main came down. We secured it around the boom and continued on the
jib. However, then the jib broke loose from the tip of the mast and was
useless. We motored home! The next day Vanessa went to the top of
the mast and retrieved both halyards. We took the sails to Doyles in
Annapolis and they repaired all the webbing on both the sails. Back in
business within 48 hours.
