Commodore Neil Sutcliffe wrote in a separate email, "Fleet Captain Sash Matic will purchase a set of two shroud tension gauges to help Members set the correct tension on their shrouds. Given the recent accidents with downed masts, it was considered a wise move.
"Members are reminded to check all working fittings, mooring lines and fastenings daily. The wind and waves never sleep and they work your boat 24x7. Although Members look out for each other they can not be responsible for the safety of other Members' boats. In the end it is each skipper's responsibility to keep their boat and by extension their neighbours' boats safe.
"For tips and advise on how to secure your boat, check with Harbour Master Dwayne Kegler (email) or ask any member of the Board."
