Jib Sheet Leads
Here are two shots from this year's non-misery Misery Cruise. Wanderlove joined us and coincidentally has the same genny block set up that we use.
Normally, the forward pads are for the main winches. The sheet is led from
the clew of the sail through a moveable sheet block, then to a stationary
foot block that sets the sheet up to approach the winch at the correct angle
whatever position the sheet block is in. my A30, a liner boat, has a
lifeline stanchion in just the right position to serve as the anchor for the
foot block, which we shackle to the bale on the stanchion base.
A serious magazine for serious sailors. This magazine deals extensively
with all sorts of navigation, from ded reckoning to radar and GPS. Also
significant coverage of other issues of offshore (or other challenging) sailing.
