No mainsail traveler…

Cf. an earlier discussion on this thread: I don’t like that at all. It only works when a very powerful downhoal is provided, which is seldom the case because of the enormous forces this generates on the boom.

This is also one of the reasons I prefer Paulo’s Comet 41 above the new model: his traveler is longer, which gives a much better upwind control of the power and shape of the main.

Best regards,
