Same, different

The two identical Southern Wind 78’s ‘Whisper’ and ‘All Smoke’ both refitted with composite rigging over the winter. Whisper on the left (pics below) chose Southern Spars continuous carbon EC6+ system with tip cup inserts while All Smoke sports Future Fibres ‘RDS’ (Removable Diagonal System) carbon rigging with modified spreaders tips.

Same boats, two vastly different systems and conveniently parked next to each other at the Rolex Maxi Cup in Porto Cervo for comparison. Stay tuned for more from the Costa Smeralda!
