Hi

Looking for a little advice on shroud tension please. Last season I just tied the shrouds on, mainly to just get sailing and learn about the boat. This year I am looking to be a bit more precise.

The shrouds seem very close to the deck loops and there doesn't seem to be much scope for tensioning. Are they there just to stop the mast falling out or is tension important on the Vareo. If so how do you set the tension, do you bend the mast first to get them tight?
 
Advice greatly received.
 
Many thanks
 
Pete
