Boat In/Out Day

Thanks to everyone who showed up for the rigging day yesterday.

There will be boat maintenance work to do on Boat In/Out day for the 420's. This will take some extra time.

There will be four categories to hopefully help make things go faster.
- Mast rigging
- Centreboard lines and function
- Centerboard gaskets
- Rudders

From yesterday we have volunteers to head up the organization of the work on these categories.

Parts locator information from Laser Performance and Zim Sailing (420 Manufacturers) are available at these links to their pdf files.
