Class Description

It will be simple to sail, made with high-quality materials, and easy to rig. It will be beautiful and have a wide appeal to many ages and skill levels.

- Comfortably accommodates two to four crew
- No crew weight restrictions
- No sailmaker restrictions
- The boat and rig will be a strict one design

Main Sail Controls

The lightweight, but powerful 4:1 mainsheet system uses four all-composite T2™ Loop blocks to lead line to a 75 mm switchable ratchet block on a cockpit-mounted swivel base. The composite sheave spins freely on ball bearings with curved bearing races. Sideplates are fiber-reinforced, high-strength nylon resin.

Gnav Vang
This upside-down, reverse-thrust vang system creates more space in the cockpit, greatly increasing crew mobility. With one end of the gnav system attached to a bracket on the mast and the other to a track and ball bearing car on the boom, the skipper uses the mainsheet to easily adjust leech tension under load.



Jib System

Small adjustments in jib sheet tension make a huge difference in boat speed. Jib sheets dead-end on free-rolling T2™ Loop blocks attached to pinstop cars and track on each side tank, lead through two 29 mm T2™ blocks lashed to the jib clew, and trim from two 57mm Flip-Flop Ratchamatics® with 150 cams mounted on the cockpit walls aft of the track.



Spinnaker System

The spinnaker sheets lead through 57 mm T2™ Loop blocks to 57 mm Ratchamatic® Flip-Flop blocks on the inside cockpit wall—perfect for asymmetrical chutes that require a ratchet's tough holding power, but must run out instantly during jibes.
