Day 3 Mechanical

on day 2 we heard and felt some changes in our genoa furling system and it was getting very hot.

So we did a little house work on board instead of sailing. The Race crew stripped and re built the Harken sailing winches while the Engineers and the Perini Technicians Stripped the Furler to check bearings a big job.. We ordered new bearing and had them flown in but the originals seemed fine. We topped with clean oil and re assembled and it tested better. A nice  (expensive) dinner at L'Isola finished off the day.
