FynCup 2004
What to do when one of your
Running Backstay has gone under the race.
Put a man in the mast to repair it

Flemming was send to the top of the mast, to fix the problem.
Wind 11-14 m/s, boat speed : 9-11 knot

Flemming was in the mast in 5-6 min. Then the boat start to tick-tack.
There was nothing to do - problem with the spinaker

Take down the Spinaker ! - No price for that.

We got the spinaker and Flemming down. And up again with the Spinnaker.
The backstay was now okay.
