Siberian Fleet seeking for old FD masts 0 (0)

FD fleets in Russia beyond the Ural mountains mostly consists of the very old restored boats and boats under restoration. It’s original wooden rigging is lost by now. Sailors are building wooden masts and booms themselves.

At the same time many sailors in Europe changed their alu rigging to carbon, and have their old unneeded mast in the garages.  

The Siberian Fleet is asking to share their old unneeded rigging. I could collect it at Balaton or other main regattas in Europe and distribute to sailors in need.
