MauiSails sail rigging tips


By Artur Szpunar

Downhaul (DH) measurement


Downhaul (DH) specification measured from bottom of the mast to the bottom of tack pulley.

This photo shows DH=5cm for a Mutant 4.6. Base extension must be set at next higher setting above the DH specification. For example of DH=5cm, base extension would be set at 6 or 7cm.

Boom measurement


Boom specification measured from clew to front of the mast at center of cutout.

This example shows Mutant 4.6 measuring 164cm. Sail should have between 1-2cm of positive outhaul after being fully downhauled.

Visual downhaul and outhaul check


Once downhauled and outhauled to specification, the tip of the batten above the boom should sit right at the back edge of the mast.

When rigged correctly, the sleeve should be taut, midway between the top 2 battens.

Overview




Smooth Camless Slalom Performance 

A simple RAF slalom outline puts the 2012 Pursuit at the level of fastest in its class. It uses an even shape distribution for smooth transition from the fullness of the lower sections to the flatter upper sections. The soft luff curve values make the simple tuning and easy rigging found in good RAF sails. Low downhaul tension can be half of what may be expected so the ‘sweet spot’ is easier to find.

The 2012 Pursuit has a wide range to handle a broad variety of conditions, and the light weight always makes it easier to spend more time sailing with ease of waterstart a prime benefit. This year we continue to ad more XPly™ materials to make the Pursuit experience a long term visual pleasure.

Tube/rod battens ensure excellent draft stability, high end control, and balance at speed. The supple organic feel is responsive to changes in wind and waves. The foil is an efficient power generator with twist progression suited to open ended blasting and carving jibes. A subtle clew cutaway shortens the boom, enhances jibing smoothness, and is perfect for waterstarting with minimum effort.
