Not wishing to miss out on any Wayfarer experiece I too have capsized twice and inverted almost immediately .

Both times have been on the beat when I tacked and the jib remained cleated and the second time when I was trying to shoot a mark .

Both times Philip has found the absense of anything to pull on a disadvantage .

This AM I intend to put a line round each shroud and tape it to the forward bulkhead so that should we go over again Philip has something to grab as he goes over the side and can lever the boat up once he reaches the CB .

Will report progress but not for a while I hope !
