Boom is a horizontal aluminum pipe to which bottom edge of big sail is secured. Avoid standing in zone where the boom might be moving. One may receive a strong strike by a boom rapidly shifting on the other board. It’s especially dangerous for head as it is set on the level of head.
Watch your head! Beware of boom, be attentive, and warn other crew members standing in dangerous zone. Boom is especially dangerous when going at broad reach, i.e. down the wind, because in this case spontaneous shift on the other board at warp speed is possible. It moves with such speed that sometimes bends or even breaks striking in backstay. The most frequent reason of serious injures!!!
Mnemonic rule to remember – “Boom strikes just once!”
