Friends in high places


A recent photo of Christina Schaeffer climbing her yacht’s mast ‘S/V Zephyrus’ using the Aloft Alone system. On board they have wire halyards so it was a very simple decision to set up mast climbing using the kit. Soenke is a climber as well so he has added a few bits of gear himself noticeably using a “rocker” for his back up..  nice!

….Might I add that Zephyrus is a really beautiful boat…. I’m slightly biased as she was my home for 8 years.

Thanks for the picture. Soenke and Christina are circumnavigating New Zealand over the coming months. This is their blog for anyone wishing to see a 37ft and 41 year old ferrocement yacht doing it in style..


Good winds and safe climbing
