    Learning to sail
  1. Another UFO sighting in San Diego. Actually I got my UFO a few months ago but it took me awhile to get through the 27 pages of helpful comments on this site. Having a great time learning to fly. My 2 cents are an extra line I use to get shroud tension. I pulled my biceps swimming. Instead of waiting to sail a couple weeks while it healed, I tied an extra red line to the top the mast here. I use the red line to straighten the mast when applying shroud tension. I have the spot marked on the mast where 40 kg of tension is with the rigsense device. It does not take long and it is easy to get 40 kg of tension even with one arm. Then I just used my good arm to sheet in both directions. The arm I was resting held the tiller. Hope that helps, Paul B
