Raising the Mast of a Small Sailboat with the Resourceful Sailor – The Solo Version

A new Resourceful Sailor Series installment is here! After a rig refit, the mast of Sampaguita, a Pacific Seacraft Flicka 20, needed to go back up. Could it be done at the dock? Could it be done single-handed? You betcha. Latitude 38‘s online magazine, ‘Lectronic Latitude, has published “Raising the Mast of a Small Sailboat with the Resourceful Sailor – The Solo Version” on December 17, 2021. This article and video go hand in hand with this past June’s “Lowering the Mast of a Small Sailboat.”

It explores the prep involved in raising a small sailboat’s mast using simple machines and physics. It compares some of the differences and similarities between raising and lowering a mast and includes a first-person video of the action.

A special thank you to Monica and the crew at ‘Lectronic Latitude for their support and patience.
