Product Description

Rigging is often portrayed as a black art which means that cruising sailors lack the confidence to tamper or adjust it through the fear of the unknown.

This eBook aims to change that by splicing together a whole range of little-known gems about rigging allowing the reader to fully get into the heart of this frequently overlooked subject. The author’s authoritative text will guide you through the practical side of putting a yacht’s rig together by covering various topics in the respective chapters:

  • Dressing and rigging a new mast
  • Tuning the rig
  • Reefing systems
  • Marlinspike seamanship
  • Care and maintenance


This eBook is enhanced with interactive illustrations, additional content and summaries to give everyone the necessary knowledge to put yacht rigs together and then maintain them so that they stay secure as this insight will help bring confidence and peace of mind to all cruising sailors.
