So these days we make them out of carbon fibre, call them sprits, and stick them out in front of the bow to attach even bigger jibs.

Re: what is going on in this pic?

the use of the club on this jib is to allow 'jib sheet free' tacking. Put the tiller down (to leeward) and watch her tack with no frantic grinding. Easy Peasy. Also helps when winging out the jib on a run. maybe not the best aerodynamically, but it does have its points.

I didn't notice that! I was thinking about the poor brand new sails wadded up on the booms. Seems they deserved better.

But the boat was sailed hard that day by several people so I guess there wasn't time to flake those,... nice new sails.

Re: what is going on in this pic?

Bob;
I think you nailed it with your statement 'convenient, but not efficient'.
Like you, I love these boats. This design in particular speaks to me...not sure why. I spent a lot (like, unhealthy a lot) of time looking at all the pics and vids I could find on the Artisan WH15s.
There's a great video online somewhere of a guy soloing one of these boats upwind in a very narrow channel/anchorage, and watching him tack the boat back and forth with barely a decrease in speed is both calming and impressive. I can't imagine a simpler way to manage 2 sails so easily.

Re: what is going on in this pic?

Easy, fun sailing doesn't need to be efficient. Just needs to fill a few hours on a nice day before cocktail hour or dinner. Race? Play! It reminds me of our Marshall Catboat. It doesn't need a club and won't point as well. Ha!

There's one on the centerline, under the jib.

It's a heck of a way to tie-off a boat though, from the stern quarter like that. I prefer from the bow if possible.

Brad

It could be this Buzzards Bay 18 vid by Alison Langley. Another old design, the BB18 is a bit bigger but similar and with a club boom.

The BB 18 is NOT, as weatherly or as fast as newer designs, but it looks easy and fun to sail, here(in the vid),inside tight Camden inner Harbor. The actual video under sail is near the end.

Re: what is going on in this pic?

He has no 100lb outboard that would allow him to motor in to his slip, because we all know how dangerous it is to actually sail a boat with no motor...

Oh my God! Sailing that monster into a slip would be terrifying.

Weenie.
