Rain in the cockpit; crew showering. Alberto is very happy, after a week. Grinding for a sail change. Sailing upwind. Carlo fiddles with a pedestal. Below, he and Kyle inspect the pedestal, which is broken. Kyle explains that the pedestal started slipping. To fix it they've had to pull the pedestal apart, requires coordination with the guys on deck. Found the issue, which was a chip in one of the sprockets. So he's shaved that down, and will put it back in place in the position of the pedestal that they don't often use. Carlo works n the sprocket. Lubing the chain. Kyle: I've seen a lot of people do this stuff, but I haven't done it much myself. On deck, Louis comes up to report on a very good sched. "Only 2,500 miles to go." They flp in little wind. Below, Kyle works on putting the pedestal back together. Coordinates with Carlo on deck. "Just be a bit rough with it, Carlo." Kyle: "Done."
