Shore-based support update 30/01/17

Wind currently 20-22 knots, sailing nicely with 3 reefs in the main and a small jib. Snapped the "preventer" (line attached to the end of the boom traveling forward to a pulley block and fastened back in the cockpit to prevent the boom from an unplanned gybe ) when the boom dug into water after being pushed by a wave overnight. First time on a dark deck at night repairing the "preventer". Now heading towards 51 degrees South. Water temp at 9 deg.  Sleeping now. Lisa is currently averaging a speed of 7.9 knots and 190 nautical miles per day.
