    the keel is a standard with a bulb not sure of the ballast weight 1.65 m down are you better to go to bigger headsails vs squaretop keep standard main . i imagine the squaretop are easy too depower or small 1st reef. these boats are quite tender . we really lack horsepower in the light it goes well in 15 knotts better
  12. does anyone have any comments on ross 830 square top main 22 sqm is this the way to go on a standard stiffened up rig with wider spreaders swept back. not sure what is the best balanced size main to suit ross 830s thank s jeremy

    we hopefully have solved some of the poorer boat speed and poor exceleration inthe lighter conditions we re cut the main adding 3 inches to the luff so that it fits the mast curve it has made a huge difference to performance also tapering half of the full batterns will help.
