We enter a local beer can race only to discover that due to high winds we will be racing only one other boat! Needless to say, we get second place :b After the race, we decide to inspect the mast step and discover what we feared. The step has been compressing and will need to be fixed before we head to Hawaii.
With our friend’s help, we pull the mast and are able to repair the compression damage. A little celebrating is in order of course and we have a great time at a local food staple, la silla roja (the red chair).
One step closer to our Hawaii crossings!
