Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Righting Lines Re: Re: Righting Lines


Thank you for all your help. I confess that although I’ve done a fair bit of Wayfarer sailing I’ve never even come close to capsizing. I use a jib only, have good reefing and don’t use a spinnaker. But I’ve always thought its a possibility and often rescue is pretty remote. I have had a secumar fitted for some years but have never used it . The righting lines seem an excellent idea an I think I will lead them from the shrouds back down the guwhale to a bungee which I’ll hook on to keep them tight. I will also fit foot loops and knots as recommended. I hope this thread is useful to others. Thank you
