Captain's log, A. Thomson: "Alex style repairs"

Hugo Boss / Alex Thomson

Morning!

In the south Atlantic with about 14 knots of wind. It’s 30 degrees and pretty stable, giving me the perfect chance to get stuck in and fix the hydrogenerator.

Last night I laminated the brackets and dry fitted with the new bolts. It’s a bit rough and ready as a repair – Alex style! But then it got dark so my aim is to finish this off this morning.

I had a bit of sleep last night but I just need to get this hydro fixed so I can get back into a better routine and focus back on both my sleeping and my sailing.
