Interesting that people worry about an area that is free from class regulation, but miss the bigger rigging faux pas that was corrected on Saturday evening Wink 
I don't think Finn sailors in general know much about this type of girlie mainsheet arrangement, so good point.

Nope I can't see it, lack of jib?
Needs to sail more...

It has got a jib and there was the problem, the dangly pole line had been rigged on the wrong side of the lowers so the pole couldn't be fully extended. On the plus side it did stop an H&S situation with the pole flying out and hitting unsuspecting (ill informed) members of the public, when enthusiastically deployed by some of the many admirers of what was certainly second most beautiful boat at the show (the winner was obviously the Finn, my Finn if you were wondering Big smile).

My Dad did that, embarrassingly. I did try to stop him... LOL

Just contact Rodney at Suntouched, you are a little far South to have a go in my boat, but if you find yourself in Yorkshire please get in touch.
Burning the midnight oil last night sorting out the mainsheet bridle, well 10 minutes anyway, as a Finn sailor rope was cut with teeth, etc. Then retired for a well earned Brandy and Babycham, cooked the dinner, did the washing up Wink
