Day 300 - Mainsail Shredded
Reid and Sonya have made it to 300 days at sea but have lost their mainsail. They are slowly working their way around the world in an attempt to make 1000 days at sea. They do have another main at the bottom of the cargo hold but it will take a day or so to move all the stuff to get to it. How long will this 7-8 year old sail last? Maybe less time than this newer sail? Catch up with their journey here.
Also David Vann has had to abandon his trip around the world just 60 miles after he started. Seems he had a welding failure on one of his cross beams. The boat was towed to Santa Cruz and he will try again next year. Check Sailing Anarchy for more info.
