Sails and Deck Gear


The mast is Sitka spruce, hollow box section approx 6" x 5" max, and was stripped down to bare wood and treated with 3 coats of Owatrol followed by 8 coats of schooner varnish. All fittings in steel were re-galvanised. All in 2003 
All halliards and spinnaker topping lift run through clutches on the forward side of the mast
Served by Antal chrome winch (2002).
Spinnaker pole (varnished Sitka spruce) stows on dedicated track on forward side of mast, making deploying and stowage very easy.
Boom is Sitka spruce, varnished, with 3 sets of slab reefing lines to bee blocks running to clutches under boom served by small Simpson Lawrence chrome winch.


Mainsail, Heard and Clatworthy. 1994. Egyptian cream with 18" panels
Genoa, Bespoke sails 1995 Egyptian cream with 18" panels
Jib, Bespoke sails 1995Egyptian cream with 18" panels
Storm jib,  Bespoke sails 1994 White
Spinnaker, Kemp sails 1996 White

All sails have been valeted and any repairs or modifications carried out every winter, so I would describe the sails as being in good condition

The headsails are all hanked on, which gives a superior performance to roller furled sails.

Because of the fractional rig, the mainsail is quite large and the fore sails do not have to be changed as frequently as on a modern sloop, making sail handling fairly easy.

Reefing gear: The mainsail is fitted with 3 sets of slab reefing points served by clutches and a winch
Winches: 1 on mast, one on boom, and two sheet winches. All chrome.
