Rig your own sailing boat? Yes, you can!


'Rigging is not a black art'    .

Do you rig your own boat? No? Do you even tune it yourself? How confident are you that you are doing it right? The Royal Yachting Association has come up with some timely help in the form of a new book entitled the RYA Rigging Handbook.

Rigging Handbook -  .. .  
Yes, rigging is often portrayed as a black art which means that cruising sailors lack the confidence to tamper or adjust it through the fear of the unknown.

This publication aims to change that by splicing together a whole range of little known gems about rigging allowing the reader to fully get into the heart of this frequently overlooked subject.

The author’s authoritative text will guide you through the practical side of putting a yacht’s rig together by covering various topics in the respective chapters:

-Dressing and rigging a new mast
-Tuning the rig
-Reefing systems
-Marlinspike seamanship
-Care and maintenance

The overall objective of this book is to give everyone the necessary knowledge to put yacht rigs together and then maintain them so that they stay secure as this insight will help bring confidence and peace of mind to all cruising sailors.

If you can't find or order this book at your local marine store, you can pre-order it online by clicking here.
