Vancouver Island Fleet: Report

Vancouver Island Fleet thanks Serge Gabilondo of Delta Marine at Westport for leading more than a dozen Fleet members through the finer points of Rigging Inspection.

Serge provided many hands-on examples of rigging failure and taught ways to maintain rigging and avoid failure. He also gave tips for making rigging repairs at sea and some recommendations for really useful tools and materials.

Serge’s four hour workshop finished with a walk of the docks at Westport on one of the most blustery Saturdays in November. We were guided through some real time inspections at the dock.

Bluewater Cruising Association thanks Serge for sharing his expertise so freely. You could say we were all “blown away” by what we learned, that’s the kind of day it was!
