Do any of you release some of the vang tension prior to the gybe.
I ask because a friend broke his Seldon rod Kicker (445) & was told it was because he had not released some of the tension prior to gybing.
However, he pointed out that he always did so.
Is this standard practice with you big boat sailors?

#1 always

It puts the least stress on everything (including the crew). You also don't have to be quick to let it back out again as it's all under control in the centre of the boat.

To avoid damage on the rig as a result of un unexpected gibe we give our mainsail sailmaker the order to make the webbings of the clew not to strvong. So wen something go wrong this is the weakest point ,the main will fly out and there will no big damage on the rig.
