Top Tip – Quick Rigging Vang and Down Haul

What you need:Oversized shackle (some use quick pin, but I learned that a shackle is more secure)Spring ClipLoop spliced into Downhaul Once set up, You’ll be quick to rig and unrig and you never unrig your down haul. 

To rig:stand mast, attach boom to mast and sailshackle vang to mast tangConnect vang to boomPass downhaul line through sail, clip in your loopPresto!!!!

Opposite to unrig, be sure that you don’t untie your downhaul, and leave the system on your cockpitDisclaimer…..This will make it simpler and faster to rig and unrig. Unfortunately doesn’t make you faster on the course.
