The Sail Loft
For 2015 we have made a big upgrade and will be rigging every sail up to 5.5m2 on skinny masts. Skinny or RD masts really offer a big leap in performance, making rigs feel lighter and more responsive.
• Tushingham Start Rigs: 1.5-4.5.
• Tushingham Storm: 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.2, 5.5, 5.75, 6.0, 6.25, 6.5.
• Tushingham Rock: 3.7, 4.0, 4.5, 4.7, 5.0, 5.2, 5.5.
• Tushingham T4: 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, 7.5, 8.0, 8.5
