You might also consider locking the the mizzen traveller off the center line and tie a preventer line going from the end of the mizzen boom to an aft stanchion or pad-eye.

Dear Jose,

I certainly do not want to keep you away of this charm, but you might try to wrap a hallyard a few times around the mizzen. This changes the airflow and might diminish the vibration.

Best regards,

I have experienced this on several occasions.  I have not taken specific note of the wind speed or angle when it occurred, but in general, if there is a strong blow from somewhere aft of the beam, there is a noise generated, which creates some degree of vibration. 


I have assumed it is when the combination of wind angle and speed causes a whistling or harmonic effect with the furler opening of the mast.


It can be attention getting, but we try not to pay any attention to it anymore.  We have added it to the list of other “charms” of sailing life.  Sorry I couldn’t provide a solution to eliminate it.
