Paulo -

That design also enables them to run the transverse jib track further inboard, making for a very tight sheeting angle upwind, something we've seen evolve in the TP52 class. The alternative would be to use a floating system, as the Minis and some other classes are doing, but that involves a few more control lines. And since this boat is using only non-overlapping headsails, it's probably a good decision.

As you mention, it's also nice to have the forward view from down below, if only for checking jib / spi trim.

Truly a gorgeous boat and I love the interior. This one is going to win some races, without doubt.
