You Don’t Have to Know What Rigging is to Help Some Friends Acquire Some

Some friends of ours at forgeover and s/v Convivia (Tucker and Victoria and their adorable kids, Ruby and Miles) are getting ready to make a dream come true by taking a 2-to-5-year sailing trip and perhaps even circumnavigating the globe! They’re planning to leave this fall, and they’re feverishly making preparations for the trip.

I’ve mentioned multiple times how much I admire them and am both jealous and fearful of their undertaking. I was so happy to find out that they’ve got something I can do to help them and be a part of their trip without actually getting on a boat. And you can help them, too!

As part of their preparations, they are hoping to get new rigging for their sailboat, Convivia. I’m not entirely sure what rigging is (pretty important ropes, I think), but I do know that all of us can help them get new high performance running rigging for free, just by joining their online crew!

It just takes a sec, and there are only 9 days left. Follow the directions below (and read more at the link to their blog post about it here: Dyneema® Experience Team).

Excerpt from their blog post about the Dyneema® Experience Team:

  1. Charity. YOU. ARE. AWESOME. thank you so much. Besides being really helpful, this warms my cockles; my _very_ cockles. Thank you!


    1. Actually, that was my reply, not Vicks. Using the wrong computer. But you warm her cockles too, fwiw 🙂


      1. Oh, my. Well, glad to be warming cockles all over the place. You should try to get dooce to put you on her blog, though. I think she has a couple more followers than I have.


Your turn! What's on your mind?
