Still deciding how to get the boat home. We'll get a new forestay first.
Hopefully some close up photos of what is left at the mast top.
Unfortunately, most forensic evidence is at the bottom of the ocean.
Forestay was only 3 years old.
We think we want a new sail made in Port Townsend rather than here.
Sun is out, wind is half what it was. Making plans for the future.
All is well.

33º 20.22' S177º 5.688' EMysticetiWe suffered major failures during a gale.
Returning to New Zealand.
1. Broken jib furler prevented jib from being furled or taken down during high winds and huge seas.
2. Forestay snapped, jib shredded. All parts now at the bottom of the ocean.
3. Major component of self-steering system fell off and is also lost.
More info when we get it figured out. Obviously a major malfunction of our intended plans.
