      Good news. After motoring for two hours back to Newport. Matt from Hall Spas & Rigging met us at the Newport YC dock within minutes of our arrival. He had all the equipment necessary to replace the headstay. Within a few hours were back on our way. Thanks and Bravo Hall Spas.

      Tough luck. The terminal is a standard eye fitting swaged to the wire and then a pin through the tang on the mast.

      Currently on cruise, in 13 kts close reach heard loud bang - looks like forestay broke at mast attachment point and jib halyard is holding up forestay. 

      Fortunately 1 hr to Npt. Presently motoring back. Anyone had similar experience - know how it it attached? Won't climb mast till we motor to dock.
