Positively Carribbean. That’s all I can say for the weather today. 29 degrees celcius in the shade. Not a day greatly condusive to cleaning a boat. But certainly a good day for tryng to get as much breeze as possible. No better place than at the top of a mast.
The mast had a fairly large amount of red dust still on it from being moored up in Tenerife for six months.
