The rigs are supplied ready to have sails fitted.
All three rigs use 11 mm diameter x 0.6 mm wall black, high-tensile aluminium mast sections and your choice of either 11 mm diameter x 0.6 mm wall black, or rectangular Sailsetc black boom sections. The rectangular booms sit a little higher, but enable infinite rather than stepped sail adjustments.
#1 and #2 masts have forward pre-bend rolled evenly from the head to 900 below for #1 and from the head to 600 below for #2. 12 mm pre-bend for #1 and 8 mm for #2. The #3 rig mast is without spreaders or forward pre-bend. With all three rigs, I tighten the back-stay to initially give very little mast aft bend, progressing to more at top-of-rig wind strength. #1 and #2 rigs use the forward shroud positions at the deck. The steeply raked #3 rig uses the aft shroud positions at all times.
Spreaders are bespoke from 3 mm diameter aluminium.
The #1 jackstay variant mainsail is cut to suit a straight mast and will accept very little aft bend adjustment.
Shroud heights, jib-boom pivots, mast pre-bend and mast rake are combined to give a rig that will automatically adjust to wind gusts, freeing and flattening both jib and mainsail in harmony. This allows the correctly trimmed yacht to sail close-hauled to windward, in balance, needing only minimal helm correction.
The mast has a plain, cylindrical plastics step. In the hull, the mast-step base is flat and parallel to the waterline. This allows the mast step angle to be tuned to the rake used, helping to keep the lower mast in column.
#2 and #3 rigs have internal mast corrector weights, to bring them to a nominal #1 rig weight.
Fittings are a selection of Sailsetc commercial and Plan B bespoke.
