When you are running an event, it is possible to collect a reasonably modest set of spares, parts and tools which will allow you to fix nearly everything; particularly if your boats are well prepared and maintained. With the priority at a Team Racing event to get a boat back racing; repairs often needs to be the  “best that can be done at the time” and  will need to be followed up and made good after the event.
