Re: Mistral 4.7 1979

Hi DCLL:

I have Mistral 16 which is likely very similar with yours 4.7. I posted pages from the manual in one earlier post - search for Mistral 16 in forums here. Lastly, since I am near you (Beaconsfield), worst comes to worst you can come and see how my boat is rigged, just to get some ideas how to go about it.

Cheers,
Bo

Re: Mistral 4.7 1979

hey
I too bought a mistral 4.7. I was wondering if you managed to rig yours, and if yes, do you have some documentation that can help me? I would appreciate that a lot, thanks

Re: Mistral 4.7 1979

Hello Mahmoud, welcome to the sailing community.

There should be a post of mine below with link to rigging instructions for Mistral 16. It is not the same boat - although very similar in size - but it can serve as a general guide. Your boat, being a racing type, should have few more lines for sail and mast adjustment.
Try it out with simpler rigging like on Mistral16 - and if there are further problems or you can still not make it, I can get to my club and take few photos of rigged 470s and post them here. You'll just have to point to area(s) that are not clear so that I can take a close in-photos.

Cheers and have a good wind!
Boz
