How to conduct a complete mast and rigging survey

one day course – Southampton - Monday 26 March Join tutor, Kim Skov-Nielsen, real time or online (morning only) for a comprehensive classroom and practical based training day taking place in Southampton, UK on Monday 26 March 2018 that will explain how to carry out a complete mast and rigging survey.

The morning session Kim will give a 3 hour classroom presentation and will provide a checklist for delegates. In this session, he will talk about:

– how to inspect the mast and rigging – when to inspect the mast and rigging – what to expect – what to look for

In his presentation, Kim will cover all types of rigging from rope to galvanic to carbon, as well as looking at different types of masts too.

The morning session only is also open to online delegates.

The afternoon session Delegates will head over to The Rig Shop. How many and what type of rigs are available will be determined on the day. Working in small groups, those present will look at and survey the laid out rigs, noting their comments and coming up with a list of faults and issues for later group discussion before close.
