Yacht Rigging talk

Don't get your halyards in a twist!
The Cruising Division is here to assist with a presentation on 26 August about the finer points of yacht rigging, given by Jason Neuhaus from Diverse Rigging and Yachting.
Jason will discuss all aspects of yacht rigging including rigging systems for both racing and cruising yachts, annual maintenance, ongoing maintenance whilst cruising long passages, replacement programs, trouble shooting and more. There will be plenty of time for answering your questions, so do come prepared with all your unanswered issues.
Before DR&Y, Jason completed his apprenticeship with Sydney Rigging Services, whose principal is RSYS Member Peter Gardener. He then moved to Noakes Rigging Service where he carried out the re-rig of Young Endeavour prior to her latest long term voyage.
Please note our 7pm start time (to allow for the Skippers' Briefing at 6pm)
There is no cost to attend the presentation, but please RSVP to assist with the setting up. Please note that due to the late start time this month, there won't be a Cruising Division dinner after the presentation - but the Bar will be open, so do stay to continue the conversation with other cruising enthusiasts.
