(Source: Southern Spars / RigPro NZ) So here we have the brand new Beau Geste Botin 80 with the original mast from the Farr 80, with a few modifications:

1: Over lamination for strength on the mast tube to respect the new boats increased righting momentum.


 2: The old mast setup used to have 2 running backstays now it has just one a side – but with three deflectors rather than two…the aero heats up!!

 3: Only over braiding on the top and bottom verticals which has been wind tunnel tested to improve the drag characteristics of the stays.

 4: Slightly swept back spreaders to help with mast control responding to the reduced running backstays.

Best of luck to the Beau Gueste and her sailing team for their endeavours.
