Mast Doctor

30 January 2018 | 130 Miles South of Cape Horn
4:30pm Tuesday 30th January 2018 ( UTC-4 ) In the days of early last century with the magnificent J Class yachts it was said that one man was allocated the task of keeping the mast pointing in the opposite direction to the keel. He was known as the Mast Doctor. Well I reckon I should get a PhD oafter my latest treatment of the subject. The former lower 10mm SS stay is now backed up by four ( 4! ) independent systems each individually controllable. Now in a fresh breeze and attendant quite solid chop there is no sign of flogging or wobbling. I only have the storm jib up but we are making way to windward and a definite current of perhaps 1 to 1 1/2 knots so understandably my confidence in a successful outcome to the venture has increased enormously. It will still mean heaving to where appropriate and extra mileage trying to dodge weather systems but I feel the task is definitely doable.
