Event Type

Rigging – it is what holds the mast up and transfers the power of the wind in the sails into forward momentum – it’s kind of vitally important and needs to be looked after.

Synthetic fibre – we walk on it, we wear it, we make sails out of it, build aircraft wings out of it – but what is it?

We will look at the many forms of fibre, how it is put together and attached; and where do we as surveyors come in; how can we inspect it and what reference points may we have?

This will be a 90 minute session presented by Kim Skov-Nielsen, IRMS, IRMC, DipMarSur, MIIMS, SAMS AMS.

Kim is an experienced Yacht Surveyor and Marine Consultant, New Build and Refit Project Manager, MCA Approved Coding Examiner and ISM Auditor, Maritime Expert Witness and Rigging Specialist.

Author of “Rig Basics – How to look after your mast, rigging and sails”, that is available to buy through the IIMS. Please email IIMS for details.
