And that is the first time I've seen what look to be curved spreaders in what I assume is carbon fibre. Is your mast 20 metres tall?
And those are indeed CF, and curved to allow the genoa to have a "bellyed" leech, and to barely "touch" the spreaders, working inside the shrouds, for sick 20ļ pointing. And magnificent speeds hehehehehe. Race genoa is battened.
Here she is, in case you missed her....with cruise cloth,
and in sportsman uniform doing some 2 crew match racing At 8kts we're surfing already.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

And T missed a great day sailing of hte Pof E today! At least once some person whom shall remain nameless managed to get his yanmar started after having an airlock from in improper fuel filter change!
So with that in mind.........Great day with AS up coming back from Whidbey, fellow 2 slips down was trying out his new Halsey AS on his H28, he picked up 2-3 knots. Lovely day once some idjiot whom shall remain nameless got the motor started with an airlock!
The same thing happened to us last week! Three guys jumped on our boat and pulled off our mast with a crane. We must have suprised them and they ran off, and they left it strapped down (rather well, I might add) to braces on our deck. We had to motor all the way up the Champlain Canal until we could find a place, yesterday, to wrestly it back into place!
