Harry and I set off at about 6:00 pm. I raise sail in the Marina basin. It is not good. I cannot get the the mainsail taught and there is an ugly crease across it. No amount of tugging on the halyards makes any difference. We motor out of the Marina into the setting sun.
I stop the motor and we glide away. I re-attack the halyards and now mysteriously I can pull both the throat and peak up a vital 6 inches. The mainsail is perfectly set.
We reach away from Okinawa.
Good way to spend the evening.
We can barely see as we come onto the the pontoon. Kiyuna san has seen us come in and is there to help with the mooring lines.
