Main Halliard Lead
Posted: Thu Feb 01, 2018 11:00 am
To help hoisting the main I have tied a block below the bottom of the mast heel to turn the rope so the pull is horizontal. Is it permitted to fix this block to the actual mast somewhere near the heel roughly in line with the halliard jammer?

Thank you for your question.
Class rule C.6.1.3 (f) states
A single block of no more than 30mm diameter may be attached to the mast using the mast step fixing screw and a lacing eye, or mast step to assist in hoisting the mainsail
I hope that helps.
