Safety

- A daggerboard retention line of appropriate length should be fitted to prevent the daggerboard from disappearing into the trunk in the event that the boat is “turtled”

- To minimize water intrusion in the event of a capsize, the two mast junctions should be taped together and all rivet holes in the mast should be sealed with an appropriate caulking compound

- Notwithstanding any requirements by a race committee or other local authority, it is strongly recommended that everyone on board wear a USCG-approved PFD at all times
