Class Description

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.

Mainsheet System

Mainsheet System
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.

Mainsheet Traveler

Mainsheet Traveler
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 trimmer.

Backstay System

Backstay System
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 the jib.
