Raising the Mast!

18th June 2014...

Click on Thumbnail On every trip from home I have to go under Northam Bridge in Southampton (the photo shows a friend doing the same). Seatern has an arrangement to make lowering and raising the mast easier. I've been asked how well this works so, since I needed to lower the mast to re-align the wind vane, I made a short movie of raising it at the jetty. Normally I would do this underway on the river.

Here are still images featured during the video (click to enlarge):
