Because sometimes it just does, although our takeaway here was: check your chafe points. But, we were surprised to see our mast (even with a rotten base) stood up to some of the heaviest forces she has ever seen. This was, easily, our worst sail ever on the boat. Lots of lessons to be learned and much to discuss about the standing rigging next time. Enjoy!
Thanks to my Patrons who help me share the journey. Get inspired. Get on board.

Hairy stuff here, and a long way from those “Sunset Cocktail Cruises”; but you need some of the former to make the latter happen.
Safe sailin’ and am enjoying your book!

Hey Randy. Yes, it was a rough day on the water but it always makes me appreciate the relaxing days that much more. Thanks for reading. I’ve got yours on my list this weekend. Looking forward to hearing about the characters that hide behind the hallowed walls!
