Travel time from Bermuda was 3 weeks..

The mystery that is the epic tale of Gary Kerr sailing from Nova Scotia to Bermuda revealed.

Update 12/18/10

 

I just talked to Gary Kerr on Seaknots chat, and he's ok after a rough ride to Bermuda..

 

He's a bit physically shaken but is restoring to good health..

 

The gooseneck on the boom blew out from severe winds.. That's why he was heading in the wrong direction for a couple of days until he could put it back together and set course back to Bermuda.  Oh, he was pinging his spot locator so much during that time for his short wave…

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"
