After a refit of almost 10 months, Savage is out on the water and racing! We cut off her old bow and gave her a new look with a reverse bow, gun metal grey for the hull and white topsides. A new carbon prod has been added with two tack points enabling us to add a Blast Reaching Zero (BR0) to the sail plan. We removed all the tracks on the front end and ran everything that we could below decks. The jib is now trimmed using a floating ring setup. We cleaned up the cockpit by moving all control lines off the deck, repositioning the winches and leading key lines to the wings. The big new main is controlled by a dual purchase sheeting system and Savage now sports split backstays. It’s still early days, but she is impressing us in light conditions and in serious breeze when heading down hill. We are still working to find the right grooves for her in moderate breeze, but that part of the journey is half the fun. Stay tuned …..
