Rig & Sails
Rig : Cutter-rigged sloop
When we bought Sans Serif she was equipped with behind-mast furling which provided massive resistance
so that it wasn't possible to deal with the main from the cockpit. So we had a standard main
and had the behind-mast furling removed.
The main, with 2 full battens i.e. half full battens, now has 3-reef slab reefing,
lazy jacks and a lazy bag.
We had both standing and running rigging replaced in April 2019. The sails (main, yankee, staysail)
have been valeted and repaired by Dart Sails and the sailmakers' report is available.
