Re: Skerry mainsheet rigg
Posted by Steve Miller on Nov 4, 2006
The Skerry is similar in size to my sailboat. I use a double block system. The boat end of the mainsheet is tied to a becket block then goes up through a block on the boom then back down through the becket block and out to my hand. Some times I need to take a wrap around the palm of my hand (one turn only) which acts like a cam cleat sort of but takes much less effor than simply holding onto the sheet. You release the hand cam by simply opening your fist/grip. The sheet will instantly release.
