Sail Stats
Construction: Legend has it that the Class was the first one-design marconi type rig in the world. She has a tapered, hollow, prebent 42-foot white spruce mast that has a 5/8ths rig and running backstays to lower the center of gravity (to afford the height of more sail area). Her overhanging boom again maximizes the amount of area she can carry aloft. The "S" Class also has a fully elliptical, rockered keel of more than a 1.5 tons of ballast.
