One stitch in the main is departing seriously.

Between 2nd and 3rd reef.

We've just put the 3rd reef in and wait for a opportunity to do repairs.

This main has done two AZAB's and one OSTAR, half a RBI and some daysailing. Altogether around 16000 nautical miles. Cuben Fiber which is quite strong and keeps its shape. Final diagnose after the race.

Under 3rd reef and staysail doing 7 knots.

Bit dissapointed but already with a plan for the repairs.

Woeaaaaahhhhh!
