You are all very kind….. Thank you for your warm thoughts.  This is just the nature of the beast.  Autopilots have plagued solo sailors from the moment solo sailing was born.  Autopilots are our life link and also our nemesis.  We’ll get it sorted out with some help from our friends.  In the meantime I woke up this morning with a horrible cold and thirty knots of wind smacking the coast.  The wind will dissipate a little and then… build to 40 knots by Monday…..a real weather bomb is about to explode in the Bay of Biscay.  I’m not sure that OGOC would have been ready for that anyway.  We barely had a shake down sail and almost no time at all to rectify all the usual things on the jobs list, let alone be ready for some real nasty weather.  All for the best I’m sure.
