Rigging a Mainsail


    • Remove the Mainsail from the storage bag and spread it out on the deck. This triangular sail has a Head (top), Tack (bottom inside), Clew (bottom outside).
    • Attach the Tack to the base of the mast, attach the bottom of the mainsail to the boom.
    • Release the Halyard from it’s cleat and attach it to the headboard at the head of the mainsail. Feeding the mainsail into the groove in the mast, take the slack out of the halyard and secure it into the cleat.
    • Using a bowline tie the clew of the boom into the sheet. Coil up your lazy sheets and lay them flat in the cockpit.

Now your ready to hoist the sail.
