How many women to mend a sail?
... well in our case at least three! One to sew, one to guide and one to consult!
After my words of the other week about the excellent condition of our staysail, I had to eat them as I realised that the scrubbing had destroyed jast about every stitch on the UV strip. Fortunately Cindy and Carole came to the rescue and helped, well really orchestrated, the restitching.
I had such fun, the rest of the marina thought the inmates had taken over as to cries of ' Ready about' and 'lee o' we made our way along the less than pristine stitching!
And now she's strong and repaired and ready to go. Thanks mates...
