|Morning meeting in the marina|
Now, the way he suggested doing this was to get some spray lubricant and the next time we raised the sail, just spray the cars as they went by, and allow them to drag the lubricant up the mast. But I saw it as an opportunity to go up the mast, clean the track well, and lubricate it on the way down. That would also give us a chance to practice our "going up the mast" technique. Plus, I wanted to see if I could re-mount the cell extender antenna that apparently used to be up there, since we have a new one on the boat.
|Our mast is raked back, so I found I had to hang on with my legs to keep from swinging away into space.|
|Sara's belay technique is very relaxed. Checking out the scenery while holding me aloft.|

|Halfway up. Sara on belay and Alexander on the winch. Good view of our solar array from here.|
