It goes down a long way (further than we could see).

In the "What broke now?" section of our program, the top car of our main sail track split, rendering our already torn mainsail completely useless. We spent the last three days motorsailing with only our jib to Lautoka, just up the coast from the sail loft. We hope it will take about a week to get the sail repaired (once we take down the sail we'll replace the broken car) and then we'll wait for a weather window to New Zealand. It sounds like planning the trip to New Zealand is an exercise in minimizing unpleasantness (e.g. significant motoring, uncomfortable points of sail, bad weather). The "women and children" of two of our sets of boat friends have chosen to fly to New Zealand while the men (with crew) sail. Maybe I should be worried (that's a joke, grandparents).
