Dunno, I wouldn't expect a Tasar mast to break if a shroud went - its just sitting in a pin on the deck. I was womndering if it could have jumped the pin and the bit sticking up is the end of the boom.

With that much weight in a Taser no wonder the mast came down!

But the hull looks more RS style???

I've thought that before, but then I've got a soft spot for Tasars. The most comfortable boat I ever hiked from and along with the RS400 the only one I'd consider hiking from again.

RS400 1289, Laser 203001

Wouldn't even need to snap a shroud - just let them off too much or even just the pin on the deck failing...
