I knew you would have got some great photo's, well done and thankyou grin . Did you notice the mast bend in the shot of "Immunity" flogging the spinnaker shocked , gives a good idea of strength of the gusts crazy . Thanks to Tim for posting them smile

I included this one of Peter Nikitin - even though it is a tiny clip from the corner of a photo and very poor quality - just to show the mast bend!

I was checking out the mozzies with spin when I could'nt help noticing how the top of the mast above the hounds is stressed. Is there any way you can strengthen the top of the mast within the class rules. blush Tried to download picture from the spin states, just too hard!


Saw it on a cartoon once.....I'm pretty sure I can do it

I don't think the stress above the hounds has been a problem, Peter did find a crack after this weekend, but the mast has had a lot of use and had a internal hound fitting, which requires cutting a bigger hole than a external one.

Over the years I have been amazed at what the Mossie mast will put up with from the spinnaker shocked , all the stuff I was told in the early days of spinnakers broke other masts crazy . So I don't think there is any need for more rigging whistle .
