Hi Sirius, hi Antti,
I will send a few more pictures about the gennakerfitting as soon as possible.
The tackline has a reduction 1:2 and was fixed on a simple block behind the winch in the Cockpit.
This construction works absolut fine so that I don't think about a bowsprit anymore. The Gennaker was built Last year from Jan-Segel in Germany and have 56 squaremeter. It is a lot of fun to use it.

Have a good new year

Hi
I fitted a bowspit from Baatsystem to be used when sailing with a genakker. I bought the genakker with a Selden Furler, the GX 10 from Zar Sails. It works very very well and the bowspit makes it much easier to get on board. The picture is was taken this summer, near Strømmarne on the Sweedish West Coast.
Kind Regards,
John

This removable bowsprit would be a good solution for flyinyg a gennaker from a HR-29
