Standing Rigging Tuneup
Properly adjusting the standing rigging that supports your mast and sails will improve the speed and performance of your boat and contribute to the life of both your rig and sails. While it's prudent to hire a professional rigger to periodically inspect and tune your rig, a knowledgeable sailor should master these important skills for times when a rigger is not available or to aid in spotting developing problems with the rig.
I took many courses from them in the past. But I am not related to Maryland School of Sailing nor I have any financial gain on this. In addition, please do not mention my name when you are talking to them; they will most likely to charge you double for the course or worst they may black list you for life having known me.
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
