Inland_Sailor Posted August 27, 2012 Report Share Posted August 27, 2012 I'm thinking of an "Off the Shelf" modern replacement rig for my Windrush 600 and its been suggested that a Nacra rig or combination of rigs/sails may possibly be suitable, so I'm doing a little background research here. For those who dont know the W600 it's a 6m long, 2.5 wide, 300kg trailable cat, built in the early 80's and carries an 8.5m [28'] tall, 125mm [5'] deep rotating mast. [ See http://lswsa.org.au/windrush-600-pages/] They sail sloop rigged and [in my case] flies both an asymmetrical kite from a movable pole and and a symmetrical kite. We sail her 3 up and carry 2 trapeze. I'm looking for a taller more powerful square top rig to improver the W600's upwind performance which is fairly moderate. [22.3m2 area of main and jib] There are no such problems off the wind. [bTW there are no class restrictions for these cats.] Can anyone here advise me on the largest ie tallest/strongest combination of mast and boomless [squaretop] mainsail from Nacras that might meet my needs?
