Tala Light

Soggy goggles and dripping head torch

Swan 45, Tala Light airs meaning tactical headaches. Wind shifts of 50 degrees in 3-7 seconds! But still trucking along. Lots of ideas and calls for sail changes only to wait for the 5 minute rule, and they’re cancelled!

Our helm noticed we picked up a lobster pot, after a tack/ back down still wasn’t clear off the keel, Gregory our hero quickly got undressed, handed the goggles and I surrendered my lovely Nav head torch for the jump. Within 5 seconds he resurfaced and gave the all clear and was back on deck.

Soggy goggles and dripping head torch handed back to the navigator and we started making the numbers much better! Depth sounder not reading so pot line over 100m!

Lots of on board debate over the rugby scores with the kiwis Aussies springboks and Welsh onboard!

Navigator clocking off! Will Broughton.
