Annie has been using a ratchet block for some time as her “mature arms” get tired hanging on to the main sheet all the way up to Corio Bay in a big blow. I’ve given it a go too because I know how she feels.
And they work. Here is a photo of the block showing how the Dyneema wire slips off so you can attach it to the saddle on the mast base. No shackles needed.
Jake Bundred enjoyed his first ride on a Blokart. And why wouldn’t he, they are a lot of fun.
Hope to see you on the beach again Jake Bundred.
