    Ropes and Rigging - What can possibly go Wrong? - Spencer Rigging

    Guest Speaker: Martin Bean

    With decades of experience on Rope and Rigging projects, Martin from Spencer Rigging (now Ancasta) will draw on his wide-ranging knowledge to highlight a number of the good, and bad, rope and rigging aspects for sailors to be aware of. 

    This is a vital subject for skippers, so critical both to safety, and good sailing performance. I'm sure it will be enthralling!!

    Martin will also be bringing along examples of rigging components to illustrate his talk. Not all of them are still working!!
