Nice recovery

So I gotta ask what happens to the shock cord when you do that? Every time I end up going out the front, there is a resounding Ping as the shock cord breaks.

Bloody hard to get good crew nowdays, new big head square top main being made, probably mylar, wanna come test it with me chocko? I put new shock cord on, extra heavy duty, crash helmet is optional...

Last year my crew went around the fore stay during a nose dive, we saved it and the bow came up between his legs... shock cord never broke... worse than that we both ended up close to the hounds.. both shock cords never broke...

the trick is to have plenty of length in you system, on my boat the crew shock cord runs through the beam three times for a total of 7.5 meters so it gets at least twice that before it breaks.
