For a full day we had rotated one man always at the wheel, with waves the size of the sledding hills at home in Minneapolis, while the other two tried to get multimeter readings in inconvenient places. A couple days later we found the actual frayed spot on the antenna cable, which could only be seen using a mirror and a flashlight, and bypassed it so we could use our computerized navigation again. We got the engine running when it quit and I learned how to bleed the fuel lines while wedged in a corner to keep from being thrown around. Until the boom broke we had been able to fix most things, and even then we had fuel in jerry cans which enabled us to motor-sail the rest of the way to Nanny Cay without a main sail. Interestingly, I think a friend was trying to help me with just these aspects of preparation in the weeks before I left. He recommended some reading and I was surprised that it dealt with how to run sailing campaigns, not about actual sailing. When he talked to me about my preparation he asked me about my watch schedule with a concern for how we would get rest, maintain active roles and facilitate communication. We finished the Caribbean 1500 at the back of the pack which was expected as we were the second to shortest boat in he fleet and the shorter boat’s top speed through the water is always going to be less than that of a longer boat. But I thought my childhood of dinghy sailing and a more recent history of keelboat racing might help me keep up.
