What year does Beneteau start using a bridge?

The late model Oceanis uses the bridge. I don't particular like it. It seems that the mechanical advantage is almost non existence for the main sheet. Without a traveler, making it more difficultly to obtain sail shape.

Does anyone have any experience with this design, any pros and cons for this?


Fine Print:
I read, I think, and I act independently; I don't come here to win a popular contest on Sailnet, nor I am here for hookup. I come here to learn, be challenged and be inspired in the art of sailing the big Ponds. I am NOT afraid of drowning in the sea, but I am afraid of dying in a nursing home and burdening those who I love.
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
