I tried to go sailing this morning. Rigged the boat and launched her without problems. I then rowed to my anchoring spot, dropped the anchor and began to hoist the main. It is then that the hailyard freed itself from the sail and flown right to the top of the mast!!!!! :shock: :x :cry: :roll:
I had no other choice but to get back on dry land to retrieve it and start all over!...
I decided it was better to go back home and hope for a better day! ;)

Today was not my day!

Oh no! Just to my ego! ;) I will change that halyard shackle. It has a tendency to not work properly.
