I'm new to sailing and have some questions. I bought this sailboat recently and it was a club racer. It is a Cal29 and came with jib, 160 Genoa, storm jib, and spinnaker and whisker pole. This boat was raced by Robert Riggle, he was one of the people killed by Somalia Pirates a couple of years ago. If you raced in the Seattle Singles races you may know the Boat Swept Away.
Can anyone tell me what this rigging is for. It is a line tied on port side of boat then goes to a block with a smaller quick clip. Then wraps around to the starboard side with another block anchored to that side. Then to piece of hardware I don't know the name of. Then the line heads aft to cockpit. Here are shots of that rigging
And other side of mast
