View of Sunspot's mast and rigging. On the mast, just above the inner forestay, is the Dantronics UFO FM/TV antenna. Below the inner forestay is the Firdell Blipper radar reflector. You can see the spinnaker pole stored against the mast. To climb up the mast steps, I start out forward of the mast. There is one low mast step, then I climb on the winches. I swing around behind the mast (stepping on the boom), then climb the rest of the way aft of the mast. I wear a harness attached to a climbing ascender riding on a halliard.
