Laser top mast in light airs and laser boom in strong winds after s gybe! 4000 on its first outing (for me) too, as soon as some kicker was put on.

Bent an Albacore mast when the quadrant lever sheared off. The shroud and attached broken lever took the bullseye clean out of the wooden deck (no deck damage) and whipped up taking the vane off the Hawk on the top of the mast. I reckon I was lucky!
