During the gale on the third day at sea, the howling winds ripped the port side flag halyard from the mast spreaders, sending my radar reflector to the unknown. When the halyard (line) came down, the Changing Course identity flag, also attached to that line, came flying into the cockpit of the Cuddy right beside me. Interesting…the reflector vanished, yet the Compass Rose drawing which is the flag almost landed in my lap in 40 knot winds while I was battling the Ocean. Two days later, I hoisted the flag on the starboard side flag halyard…it flies there now along with the flag of Bermuda.
- I am in Bermuda…safe and sound…a little tattered…but I am here. (coolchangeproductions.com)
