This is where technology comes into play. A walk down the docks of last year's boat shows revealed that manufacturers of even modest-sized sailboats are putting electric winches to work, allowing the crew to raise sail and sheet it in with the push of a finger. Of course, this added horsepower comes with the responsibility of paying attention to one's surroundings. The owner of a boat that was recently test sailed had blown apart a block on the vang by using the electric winch on the outhaul...

Matthews, a lifelong racer who last summer won the race around the Isle of Wight against such star-studded rivals as Maximus and Mari-Cha IV, set the stage for the Oyster event when he lectured competitors at a skippers meeting before the first race. I don't mean to sound silly, he said, but I must remind all skippers that if you try to duck another boat, it's not enough just to wait till the last moment, then turn the wheel and expect the boat to respond. You must also ease the sails. I know...

Baby And The Beast

Your boat's mainsail is its principal driving force, so whether you're old school or not, a flaker or a furler, get to know it well and take care of it so that it'll take care of you. The North Sails Rhode Island loft is a service shop, performing maintenance and repairs on sails from pocket cruiser to megay-achts. We have two distinct types of customer, says Henry Little. Our regular New England sailors use the boat at most from May to October and bring the sails in every winter for...

Practical solutions and techniques for the bluewater sailor More Powerful Mains, Less Muscle to Manage Them Sail design evolves with new hardware to better harness the wind It's a classic chicken-or-egg question, but with a nautical twist Does sail design drive the evolution of sailhandling gear, or is it the other way around When it comes to sails, ease of handling is high on the cruising sailor's wish list, even if that means giving up some performance. But as sailcloth technology and...

Upgrade By Carolyn Shearlock

Hardware and a little elbow grease gets your whisker pole off the deck and onto the mast, where you'll use it When out cruising, the wind, it seems, is always on the nose or dead astern. A little over a year ago, my husband, Dave, and I installed a mast-mounted whisker pole on Qu Tal , our Tayana 37, and since then, we've more than doubled the amount of time we spend under sail because we're now able to make good speed with the wind astern. And as a plus, our sail plan is better balanced, often...

The Duct Tape Conspiracy Theory

Duct tape, this cruising sleuth is told, is prohibited in French Polynesia to boost the economy If everyone had it, no one would ever buy replacement parts or pay for services BY GREGORY NEWELL SMITH The boat gremlins stole my duct tape.

Shorthanded crews and full-battened sails both benefit from the installation of a set of lazy jacks on a modern cruising boat. A basic set of lazy jacks consists of three or four lines attached to the boom and held up by a line that attaches to the boom about three-quarters of its length from the gooseneck and to the mast somewhere above it's halfway point. Their name suggests that maybe you could set 'em and forget 'em, but if you do, lazy jacks will slap on the sail, especially if you're...
