  • Bow Washers

    Have you ever had problems with dropping your kite? On the older Laser boats the bow washers which hold the jib tack bar in place wear over time and can cause issue with the spinnaker and/or spinnaker retrieval rope getting caught and making the crew’s life hard and them struggle on the drop (especially around a busy leeward mark!).
