Carbon-fiber mast by Hall Spars safety allows the elimination of the backstay, which in turn frees the mainsail for significantly larger size and better aerodynamic shape. Sail control by electric winches enables one person to hoist, reef, trim and lower sail, all from the wheel station.

With the patented Hoyt Jib Boom adding off-wind power, this is a 2 sail, self- tacking rig that projects more sail area than any ordinary rig with a 150% genoa. The payoff is excellent light wind and offwind speed-all easily single-handed. Sail tests indicate speed superior to the competition.
