The International Farr 30 One Design Class Association was formed as the
owners association to support the class and promote One Design class sailboat
racing amongst owners which led to the class becoming an ISAF Recognised Class.
This entitles the class to hold World Championships.
The boat was originally named the Mumm 30 after its original title sponsor
Champagne Mumm this sponsorship ended in 2007 and the class rebranded to Farr
30 using a modified version of the Farr 40 class logo. Both the Farr 30 and
40 had been under the management of Geoff Stagg since their inception however
in 2009, the Farr 30 Class owners association assumed control of the class.
The boat has been produced by a number of builders with Carrol Marine USA
and Ovington Boats GBR building the majority other builders are DK Composites
and US Watercraft.
57 mm blocks and a ratchet block mounted on a swiveling base
on the cockpit floor make the Farr 30's 6:1 gross-tune mainsheet system
easy to adjust from any angle. A 4:1 double-ended fine-tune is lead to
either side of the cockpit through 40 mm blocks, resulting in a final
24:1 purchase. A pendant (dark blue) reduces the distance between blocks
for a shsorter mainsheet and faster trimming.
The Farr 30 has a double-ended captive ball bearing CB traveler system.
The powerful 5:1 controls terminate on the cockpit sides next to the backstay
and mainsheet for complete mainsail control by the helmsman and mainsheet
A cascaded 16:1 backstay with a 4:1 and twin 2:1 purchases provides the
power to tune the sail shape when the breeze exceeds 7 knots.The double-ended
4:1 runs forward to 29 m Carbo AirBlocks® behind the mainsheet
traveler and cleats on either side of the cockpit. Using backstay tension
to add mast bend and headstay tension depowers both the mainsail and
