How do you fix a pinched furled main....

....well, you get a nice sunny windless day in Richmond (ha! ya right but it happened), 8 of your closest family and friends, and go up the mast and work it out.
 Hours later and huge thanks to Erik for his dedicated time to getting it straightened out, (fingers crossed) we've figured out the temperment of our main, she likes a little vang.

Thanks also to Keegan, John, Hal, Martin and Glenna

PS - for the record I virtually had to arm wrestle Monica to be the first up the mast.

 and after all the work we had some fun, took Mom and Dad Richter out into the breezy Bay
