Rigging and sails
Rigging and sails are designed around the criteria
of single handed or one couple sailing. All halyards, primary sail sheets, boom
brake, and reef lines, lead to an electric winch at the helm. Running backstays
and control lines, sprits bridle adjustments and off wind sail sheets, lead to
the cockpit. The furling off-wind sail is controlled with port and starboard
mechanical winches in the cockpit.
The carbon fiber freestanding man mast simplifies
sail handling providing wider sailing angles, easier reefing and unobsctructed
side decks. It increases stability and safety with a lower center of gravity and
automatic depowering and improves reliability due to the lack of supporting
stays. The carbon fiber boom is controlled and supported by a hydraulic vang and
boom brake and includes single line reefing.
There is an adjustable bridle for the furling off
wind sail between carbon fiber telescoping sprits in each bow. The jib includes
a self tacking carbon fiber Camber Spar, lazy jacks and sail cover. The full
batten mainsail includes two reef points, lazy jacks and sail storage system.
