clubfooted staysail

We remove the club boom from the staysail on our Westsail 32 and installed a curved athwartship track with sheet car. With this configuration you only need one sheet and the sail will self tack. If you add a double block, depending on the size of your boat you may not need a winch. We also installed roller furling on the staysail and the whole rig works a treat.
