Of course, there’s always plenty to do when preparing to sail, and this is the longest we have been away from Ayala since we got her. Our one casualty from Hurricane Lidia was our wind instrument, so that will need to be replaced. Sourcing it was surprisingly easy – there were online options plus several local vendors. We’re going to pick it up when we get to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, our next stop. And our stackpack is starting to disintegrate in earnest – I have sewn and re-sewn it so many times, but it’s getting hard to patch on the patches, so we are having PV Sailing make us a new one.
