TS 52 crew clean sails?

Any one with any details on "How "etc?



TS52 specifications appear similar to most modern performance cruisers such as "Schionnings" , so it will be interesting to see some more details.

Regards

Re: TS 52 crew clean sails?

Good to see that capsizing a multi is still safer than sinking a mono, No one was hurt or lost a life in this incident, which is more than can be said for many loss of lifes on monos recently.

Oh and this appears to be the first multi capsize in 6 months given its catty's first post in 6 months.

And the boat is still salvageable? Another good point versus sinking.

Yeah - after the loss of a number of lives on mono accidents I am kicking back a bit on these incidents that Catty searches for, rather be on that cat than Andrew Short Marine

Wonder if the crew pushed it a little bit too hard :

Catty's falling down on the job-- he missed the recent Gemini capsize and a few others this year.

Good thing the capsize didn't occur offshore, or the outcome would probably have been tragic--that water is pretty cold.

Re: TS 52 crew clean sails?

And yet we see little of this when a mono sinks and lives are lost. Perhaps some people have more respect and courtesy
