Mast debate

Errrr.....I've been in discussion with those nice people at MEC Sail, from whom we charter Flying Formula. A pre-race check of the rigging has revealed two hairline cracks in the mast. We've had some discussions about the possibility of taking a different Sigma 38, but that could be tricky, because it breaches the RORC requirements, which require us to do our qualifying miles in the same boat as the Fastnet. MEC Sail are therefore currently organising having a new mast fitted over the weekend. Of course, there will be an awful lot of other stuff to do, with rigging, lights etc, so we'll hold our breath that there are no complications....

  1. Ooo-er. I hope they get it sorted and the rig tuned in plenty of time. Maybe it will make you faster :-}
