Fastnet amendment

I forgot to mention one of the biggest details about the fastnet to the report so here it is!

On the first night the carbon goose neck attaching the boom to the mast snapped. It looked like a race stopper but I had a good go at lashing it together and decided to try racing and see how we went.

The repair worked great and lasted the whole race, but it was always in the back of my mind especially when we were pushing hard.

It wouldn't be fun if it wasn't tough at times!
