    1000 mm out I guess?
    Nice set-up!

    Why do you have the sprit all the way out?
    Can´t you just have it out 1 meter and the sail at the end?

      Because we want to be able to tack gennakers at the same time as the code is hoisted/rolled.

      the common scenario is that you’re on code, go to A3 as the wind moves aft, but then go back to code again. Now you just leave the code furled and ready to deploy.

      Also, with your setup you need an adjustable bobstay, which isn’t easy to do if you want some serious tension.

    Hi! It looks the bobstay only supports the code? Do you move that forward when you have the genakker on or that is not supported? Also it looks like the bobstay is not connected to the pole but the bottom of the Furler. That’s a bit strange for me? How the forces would transfer?

      We don’t think the bobstay is necessary for soft flying sails, just the ones with a luff cable (ie Code/J0).

      The thinking is to get ALL loads (bobstay + furler + Dyneema-line to end of sprit) in the titan ring, and NOT on the sprit itself. Ideally the only load on the sprit is inwards.
