Had a bit of a swim across from Swell after a broken mast base tendon. Board went east in the wind - rig stayed behind as I swam to shore - thank you lifeguard training and Andy and his daughter for a final lift along their OC after swimming half the Columbia. The board is a fanatic Freewave 85. Sail is a Northwave 3.7 Green —-think I’ll make a habit of wearing my PFD

Your board has been towed by the kite-lesson-jetski to the cove at The Hatchery.

People worried about the sailor. Glad to know you're fine.

Glad you are safe. Out of curiosity...did your base have one of these? https://chinooksailing.com/collections/mast-base-parts-hardware/products/safety-strap-rubber-tendon-joint

The strap is used on the hourglass type, the tendon doesn’t have provision for it.

I saw what looked like a green rig on the Oregon shore opposite Cheap yesterday afternoon - well inside of the stumps.

Maybe that's what Wyatt saw yesterday? http://www.iwindsurf.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=34378

Glad you made it back okay.

Don't you fix tendons for a living? Very Happy

So long as the rig has a US base cup, not a Euro pin, which has ropes.

So each of us have ac 50 % chance of being wrong or right.

Thanks everyone for your support- great community!!
Got the board thanks to the jet ski kite teacher - I’d like to thank the savior personally— I do fix tendons but only the people kind - usually don’t almost drown doing it ~~~
