The tapered mainsheet runs from a ratchet and two 75 mm Carbos to a 4:1
purchase. When building speed, the boom can be pulled tight against
the skipper's shoulder because the purchase uses low-profile Carbo
T2s and small, recessed boom blocks.
The Carbo Ratchets provide up to 15:1 holding power without compromising
easing ability or chewing up lines.
Fore-aft travelers with pinstop lead cars make it easy to adjust the
sail. Pulling the cars forward pushes the boom into the mast, rotating
the spar for a deeper pocket. Moving cars aft flattens the sail for
speed in the upper wind range.
