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




Technora material adds a whole new dimension

The TR-8 XT versions follow on the refinement from the TR-7 major changes in outline and aspect ratio. We can now concentrate on improving each size in the new form and get more out of the major improvements of last year.

Because of the sensitive nature of the lighter material, each size of XT racing sails are tuned specifically to the material, creating an efficient soft feel that responds to every gust. The ODL04 Technora is tough, light, and UV resistant.

The general direction of development has been to create a deep stable profile in the lower sections, and flatten the middle to promote progressive twist. By carrying the flat sections to the top, high end has improved and balanced nicely with the powerful long chords near the boom. The net effect has been an improvement in range without giving up the easy handling and excellent low end of the TR-7.

In the larger slalom sizes and the Formula group, using the Technora material adds a whole new dimension to light wind performance. It must be experienced to be believed, and once you try it, will be completely sold forever.
