Nice work, looks like a nice rig too.  How does the fat head go with getting caught on the back stay?

Hi Smitty,

 

The top was measured so that the whip is still longer than the head ...... it should all clear, so far no issues, but that was the first time the sail had been up as we had feeder issues and the sail jamming.

The big head flicks thro' without any issues even tho we have only sailed in our light winter breezes ....

 

The new headsail with the square top has given us a bit of grief but small mod being done and all should be good.

 

None of her original sails remain, at least as sails, Peter is going to make gear bags of of the old headsails.

From that photo the genoa looks like it needs a bit more entry, either loosen the forestay a huge amount or add 30mm of luff curve. They like plenty of entry and then inhauled at the clew.
