Rigging and such

Here's a pic of the fore deck and mast partner on Gabby; we flew 3 different sails depending on conditions. A tarp spinnaker which was the bomb; an old school PAS style sail found deep deep in the Wing-man's sail loft and an outstanding main sail, the Balogh Canoe Classic 36.
Captain's nav table had all the fixings, here's a shot of the set up; SPOT, GPS, RADIO and throw bag. Safety first as we went through procedures for capsize and an man over board.
The stories flowed in the bow as the "Bobber" told tale of cold water immersion. Nothing like actual stories to educate the crew on survival.
