OBR Sam Greenfield

Dee, below with alarm sounding, talks about frontal system gave them nasty waves, and now they have a rig issue. On deck, she explains that Liz is going up to check. GoPro (Garmin) shot from Liz's POV up the rig as she finds the starboard middle spreader popped out of the mast. Elodie explains that they are trying to bounce the mast to screw the spreader into the mast again. Not easy. Dee explains that they've received a phonecall that okays them to use the J1 and the FR0 and the reefed main. "It's good news and we're going to get sailing again!"
