My dad loves adventure and doing “dangerous” things but there are just 1 or 2 things he has a fear of. Number 1 is loss of control and number 2 is a piece of equipment failing. You could argue it’s the same thing as he hasn’t got control on that rope or cleat.
Before we left Clive came to help us with climbing up the mast. I was sick and tired of the times my dad asked him “Will this hold me?”. Come on dad you’re not that fat!! My dad climbed up twice the mast in the end.
The video above shows my dad climbing up the mast and me assisting him with the help of Clive.
