Yacht - De Havilland Rambler, Rigging

I sail the Rambler with and without sails.

Without Sails

A couple of shots of standing rigging for the yacht, and the boom. Pictures taken on the Genoa River, SE Australia.

Note that the stays are tensioned and that a back stay has been fitted.

With Sails

Pictures from Lake Burley Griffin. With sails, the stays are relaxed a little. As the Jib is stressed, it effectively replaces the fore stay (which can become lax and interfere with the Jib) and also tensions the side stays. T,
