Honolulu: a productive day
Above is Sam the rigger. Not perhaps his best angle, but one I was very glad to see.
He was due to work tomorrow, but had time today; and GANNET now has running backstays. Excellent. More than excellent. Excellent+.
On the forward side of the mast at the level of the runners, is the spinnaker halyard. And then the headstay with furling jib and the upper shrouds.
I also had an email from the sailmaker that he has finished his work and will deliver to GANNET tomorrow morning.
And I had my laundry done.
I’m not sure what a small Chinese lady put in the machines, but some of my passage clothes now smell wonderful.
The result of all this is that my departure for Apia next Tuesday, July 1, which is the date for which I have been aiming, looks as certain as anything in life can be.
