Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Super Maramu Staysail


Alexandre Uster von Baar
 

Good morning Alain,

That is pretty nice you don't need any running backstay!
I noted you mentioned heel average 20° with the genoa, unless I am mistaking I believe the longer waterline is at 15°, so personally I try to heel at 15° as much as I can.
8° gained from true wind is pretty good!!!

On the last picture, what is the blue ? near the mizzen mast? Almost looks like a furled sail?

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hello all,
last winter in Marmaris,
we equipped Pilgrim with an inner forestay, furler and
staysail (27 sqm). I created a folder with pictures taken
during initial tests at sea.

You can notice that
the upper fitting is installed 50cm below mast head,
avoiding running backstays. This design has been validated
by Amel. As alreaday mentionned we have to furl the genoa
during the tack changes... that's a compromise but not
an issue because we have time and do not make regatta. If we
need to change sevral time of tack in a narrow space with
windy conditions, we use the staysail noth the genoa.
The lower fitting is in the same area as Brava
but we a simplified below deck reinforcement. We will be
back to Pilgrim end of this month and then able to provide
additional pictures if some of us are interested.
The sheet relay pulley bracket is attached on
the side of the roof, close to the main bulkhead in a very
stiff area. Inside the boat, one bracket is in the
electrical small upper locker in the toilet on one side  on
the otherand the wardrobe No need for roller track or
complicated:expensive stuff.
You can see on
the pictures that we get an angle very closed to the wind.
Sometimes I use the counter sheet to close the angle even
more.
Results: I succeeded to furl the genoa
and open the staysail in less than 1 mn allowing good
comparison; true wind around 20 knots, swell below 1m.
Speed: same with genoa and
staysail, slightly better with staysail
Heel average: genoa 20°, staysail
10°TWA: genoa 50°, staysail 42°We
get more comfort and above all our next genoa will be much
less sollicitated.All this was done with a very good
cooperation spirit with local UK Sails team that I warmly
recommmend.Hope it helpsAlainPILGRIM
