A wonderful serenity has solo sailing …The lifeline is the link between the sailor and his boat and is the point of attachment of the harness lanyard when moving around the deck.

It must therefore be accessible, practical and solid. Here’s how to install it for maximum safety. I am alone on board, so exciting but safety first.

As its name suggests, this line is a way of watching over the life of the sailor. It is a line (strap, cable, rope…) stretched from the stern to the bow of the boat. The crew member who has to move towards the mast foot or the foredeck hangs the carabiner of his harness lanyard on it. This way, without unhooking, he will be able to stay connected to the boat all along his displacement.
