Way to go Mark. Not many people can say they sailed solo across the Atlantic Ocean! Sorry to hear about your forestay though but real glad to hear from you.

Congratulations and glad you are safe.
Everyone on the ARC has reported a slow trip.
To loose the forestay , but keep the mast requires is a great feat of seamanship, especially solo.
Looking forward to more details.
