Lets get those masts stepped! 

Were starting work on Almas rigging

The magnificent achievement of returning Alma Doepel to the water after her extensive hull restoration was the highlight of 2021. Its now time to look to the next major milestone stepping Almas masts.

Whats involved?
First, the basics fitting pin rails and chain plates, a job for our skilled shipwrights. This first stage rigging work, including materials, will cost $30,000. That’s our Stage 1 rigging target.

Purchasing the hundreds of metres of standing rigging wire and fittings required to support the masts will be our Stage 2 target for 2022.

You can donate directly to our mast stepping campaign, or you can choose to ‘Buy a Block’ ($500) for the rigging and have your name on the Block Honour Board 

You can donate to the mast stepping campaign online on this page.
