The sail plan.

‘Waratah’ will have a so called cutter rig. It consists of one main sail, with full battens and 3 reef points for double line reefing of about 42 m2, and two head sails. One is a genoa on a Harken roller furler, the other one on the inner stay a staysail of about 19 m2. This one is also rolling furling. The total effective sail area is about 90 m2.

In the future I might look if it makes sense to add a cruising spinnaker.
