Wednesday Working party saved by split pin

IMG_0265 IMG_0266When the main halyard on one of the Laser 2000s gave up the ghost on 27 July the Wednesday Morning Working party sprang into action .
Chris Pollard provided a replacement rope and some helpful expertise .
Peter and Brian provided the muscle and Eric had a long piece of twine with a split pin on the end .
Feeding the split pin down through the mast was a little tricky with the boat tilted against the end of the clubhouse but when it got to the appropriate hole in the mast it very helpfully popped out of the hole of its own accord .
Anyone using a club boat who notices a problem should put a note in the defects log by the phone although we can’t always provide such prompt action .
