Two years ago I walked down two of the docks at WYC and took pictures of random rigging misdemeanors on our boats. I think I stopped at 10. Missing rings, improper hardware, spreaders pointed DOWN, bent stainless. Posted them all on our club FB page. Created quite a stir.Interesting that it happened in front of you.
Happy no one was hurt.
That it happens to racers is a result of seeking all that they can out of their boats.
The frequency of occurrence supports the statement of my rigger friend that many more boats in the marina have bad rigging than one might imagine.
I've found that being a good racer does not necessarily make you a good SAILOR.
