Re: Rig Tension - Amount of purchase required?

Better to use low friction rings on the first part if tje purchade at the shroud ends in my opinion. The 1" wire blocks are too close to the limit. Are you in the Canoe facebook group: facebook.com/groups/sail.ic

Its easier to post pics there and is much more active than this forum

Pre-Nationals Training Event

After the Weymouth training got blown off I was wondering if there be any takers for a training event immediately prior to the nationals in Plymouth?

Thinking Sunday 9th June.

Re: 2019 Nationals Plymouth

Tony Marston's Top Secret Formula will be used to generate a handicap result for older boats to have something to fight for.
