Gaff Rig 1Thu 29 Apr 2021 21:43:21
Red Herring Red Herring Mon 19 Apr 2021 20:29:23 Has anyone tried re-rigging their Manta 19 with a gaff or gunter rig? I'm very tempted to try, since, with the standard bermudan rig, when sailing on the River Cam I lose most of the available wind to the river bank and vegetation. Those other boats which have gaff rigs designed for the Norfolk Broads always do much better
