Main issue resolved.... (fingers crossed)

so after a long chain of emails on Hylas owner's group, I came to find (as is with most issues) that we weren't the only ones having a problem.

Seasilk Aground at Mag Bay

The following story was taken from Lat38.  First we want to acknowledge how thankful we are that the crew of Seasilk survived this ordeal.  Anyone can talk about and 2nd guess anything they want but the fact remains the captain kept his crew safe to sail for another day.

How do you fix a pinched furled main....

....well, you get a nice sunny windless day in Richmond (ha! ya right but it happened), 8 of your closest family and friends, and go up the mast and work it out.

Another day, another main sail problem

Friends Pat and Sandy, who we were fortunate enough to meet at the Strictly Sail Pacific show last April in Alameda joined us this weekend for a sail around the bay.

Monica & Chris polynesian sea turtle

The general shape comes from a turtle, symbolizing family, and being strongly related to the sea, made using a twist (eternal love and union, two lives which, even if separated at times, perhaps due to travels, will always get back together in the end); the head includes a spiral, a symbol used to represent the sun (eternity, joy).  Inside this bond, on the shell, the flax leaves symbolize family union and the spot just below them represents its importance (the standing stone, the personal happy island), and over the flax area a maori-gram of the letters M and C.  The front flippers are tiki to protect the family from every side, with fish hooks (prosperity and wealth). The back flippers are two seashells (love, intimacy and safe shelter).
