Over the Futtock Shrouds

 I’ve had the pleasure of working with some great folks at Mystic Seaport. But there is nothing like working aloft with them!  In the video I climb the shrouds to the ‘top,’ the platform  on the mast. But before we climb out on the yard, we have to climb over the futtock shrouds, where we are, temporarily, sort-of-up-side-down! You can see that we ‘clip in’ using a safety harness at this point until we reach the top. Some the ‘squaddies’ are already out on the yard.
