What to do when one of your Running Backstay has gone under the race.
Put a man in the mast to repair it
Flemming was send to the
top of the mast, to fix the problem.
Wind 11-14 m/s, boat speed : 9-11 knot
Flemming was in the mast
in 5-6 min. Then the boat start to tick-tack.
There was nothing to do - problem with the spinaker
Take down the Spinaker ! - No price for that.
We got the spinaker and
Flemming down. And up again with the Spinnaker.
The backstay was now okay.
