    THE IMOCA thread, single/double handed & TOR

    Rig is in the process of being stepped or unstepped. On the bow is one of the crew with the forestay and rolled jib which is not connected either

    The water buffalo under sail (the team's term for the boat, not mine)

    Traveler Line: To Loop or Not To Loop

    If you don't need a winch to adjust them, ditch the clutches and go to cam cleats while you are at it. Will make things even easier. Absolutely agree on the endless loop saving line versus port and starboard lines.

    Appears that Charal has moved towards the Verdier twins (Dalin and Ruyant) but not as far as A. Tripon's Manuard boat. Did DMG-Mori get modified too? Any news when HB is coming out of the shed?

    The red section of the bow is now larger, did they modify the bow or just the graphics?

    Thanks am familiar with the layout that many of the new boats are using. The angled island it the part that seems most unusual with the grinder pedestal between the two winches on the island. That was what I want to see more of. With MichDes involved they much have a good reason for what looks to be an asymmetric layout. To a lesser degree even the asymmetric windows in the cabin top carry on the this theme.

    Paul Bieker is also doing similar rudders https://biekerboats.com/project/rudder-tubercles/

    Likely to allow a look up at the jib, either with a camera or from inside the boat. The fairing behind the mast is interesting, likely an endplate tool. Anyone have any cockpit pics? Looks like the layout is a bit unique with two winches forward (beneath the computer screen) and two more winches on an island with the island being oriented diagonally

    Is this the Figaro III?

    There's a reef in the main, despite what the video caption says. Right at the end of the clip you can see the reef bundle at the main tack

    I expect the inboard end of the foil cases drain directly into the keel wet box. Since the foil boxes curve and essentially end at the hull right on centerline this would be an easy thing to plumb.

    Traveler and mainsheet system upgrade

    This is from a Melges 24 but have also seen them on J22s. A chunk of angle with a two cleats for the traveler
