Dolphin Star - ANOTHER DAMAGED BOOM (02.12.2016)
The wind suddenly changes of direction and the main boom is immediately under pressure through the preventer (a forehead rope securing in place the main boom). It happenedmany times during the crossing but this time the boom end cannot held the force and a key aluminium part splits off. The crew promptly reacts but the damage is done to adjust correctly the main sail. Dolphin Star 007 006 011 009. read more...
