04 Dec Almost finished
4 December 2017
The last stays are put back in place. With the exception of a few details, the standing rigging is ‘ready’. Most of the sails are also placed back, but on the running rigging there is still some work to do. Also, the ratlines (the lines between the stays on which we climb up) are not finished yet. This is a time-consuming activity, because all the ratlines are attached with multiple seizings and it can take a while before we have attached all of them again.
Luckily today is a dry day and the weather forecast for tomorrow is positive as well. This makes the work up high in the masts a lot nicer.
