A week ago after sailing from Tangier Island to Smith Island and then on to a little creek south of Crisfield I found the leech seam on my jib was separating. I was pleased to find an old roll of sail tape in with my repair kit. That patch held well while sailing up the Bay, sometimes with winds gusting in the 20s. But I knew it needed reinforcing .
Rain and wind since about noon today. Better weather tomorrow. I’ll cast off on Wednesday.
