3745RE: [Weta-Trimarans] Re: Forestay tension
- Aug 3, 2012What a great idea. A "dah" moment for me.
First sail of the year was Monday due to the extreme drought here in Kentucky. The lake has only recently filled to sailing depth. I only mention it so ya'll appreciate your ocean/lake/bay.

i usually (ie when i remember) loosen the forestay half hitches BEFORE taking down the gennaker. a 3:1 on the gennaker halyard takes most of the load off the forestay, making the half hitches easier to undo, and safer in the event of a sudden slip.
(we have 10 here now, btw, as of last week)
