Kill two birds with one stone


At the end of the season, it’s a good idea to rinse your warps, sheets and halyards. Some people stuff them into a pillowcase and put them in the washing machine – but here’s another idea. Pump up your dinghy, fill it with water and wash the ropes in it. When you’re done you’ll have washed your dinghy too – now you can dry it and store it safely over the winter.
