Great News! Looks like we might be able to get the bracket from the United States! The Rigging Shoppe is also working hard at sourcing all of the proper components for the rig and we should have all new standing rigging for Bermuda.

This is the spreader bracket. It’s my spare. It will fit just fine, but now I need to get a new one from France or I need to find a fabricator who can make me one here. It’s a cast piece, rather than a welded stainless piece, which makes it much trickier to get a replacement!

Well it’s time for some new standing rigging!
The D4 blew 2 strands while I was in Miami, so it’s officially time to replace all of the standing rigging. While Nick was stripping it all off the mast today to go to the Rigging Shoppe, we found that one of the spreader brackets is also broken straight through….hmmmmmm

Next up on the agenda is the Bermuda 1- 2. The race starts June 3rd, 2011. It’s 600 nautical miles from Newport to Bermuda. The first leg to Bermuda is single handed, and then the second leg coming back from Bermuda to Newport will be double handed. Nick will join me for the double handed leg back. There may be four or five minis in this race! I’ll keep you posted as things develop.
