12:00 pm - 5:00 pm


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 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 a Yacht Surveyor & Marine Consultant, New Build & Refit Project Manager, MCA Approved Examiner & 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, email for details.
