Comment: Blisterfall gerissen, am Gro▀mast klariert, dann Blister ganz zerrissen. Alles O.K.

Harry's Diary: Wind well 4 Bft. However caught up by NO, Bermuda sails and Blister, Main and Besan sails set. Make 5 - 6.5 knots travel.
Prognoses of the "German weather service" apply. 12:55 with large bang tear those case of the Blister - in the water - repair.
To contrive Gerhard R. at the mainmast completely above around case again. After 2,5 hours of Blister set - 17:30 bang!!! ?
Blister says good-bye - totally tore up.
