This setup is now so dominant and agreed by all teams being very easy to use and be fast allround and results of Worlds 2012 have proven this more than ever before.


Update October 2012      

what we and several other teams used very succesfull in 2009 to 2012 seasons continously refined in small development steps for sure a fast and easy to use allround package

Mast: Super-Spars M2

Sails: Bojsen-Moeller OneDesign


BM Sails 1. at Worlds 2012 / 2011./ 2010

BM Sails 1,2,3… at 2011 and also 2009 and 2007 Europeans

BM Sails 1.   at 2012 GER / DEN / SWE /FRA Nationals


Mast rigging:

Shroud height 4890 above deck

Trapeze position was 4950 is now used as exit hole for trapeze barber system

new trapeze height is 5700 with tweaker system to release always when wire reaching

spi halyard at 5955 Maximum height

spreader length from side of mast to shroud:

415mm when unsure how to set up for the day and if windhy

420mm in light to medium

spreader swep back measured shroud/shroud to back of track 140 -145 mm (at 415 length)


All our new boats new use adjustable shroud travellers to adjust shroud position forward and aft which works same as adjusting spreader angle

Mast should have either a hook in T for forstay with adjustment through bow section or a 2:1 system with block at above jib

definitly not a 1:1 direct jib halyard too much load on box and compression on mast section main halyard rally should be with halyard lock as we fit to all new boats


Mast position in boat : as far back as rules allow which is 3048 backside of mast to back of boat

Boat deck hole should be cut out about 20mm in back as we always do


Position of shrouds: 2615 mm   measured from station11 / transom corner back edge forward

But moved 50mm forward in very light to prebend mast and moved backwards up to 150mm in strong conditions when using more and more mast rake to be able to controll mast bend in the mid mast


Mast rake: max. upright position is 7,88 m

Measured the accurate way we do it (and not with bend mast as others do) with full rigg tension (25 measured with SuperSpars Gauge) mast pushed straight by controller 0 of tapemeasure at underside of top black band and then measured at underside of hull/transom with tapemeasure running over the transom.

Board:   max. length High Aspect gybing board   3 degree gybing angle   very good medium size foil! stands out of hull 1425 width at hull exit 295mm a perfect moulded board like this is a must have – got 8 layers of carbon each side and perfect shape
