Tuck Up Pleasure Rig

Here is ARTEMIS sprit rig with improvement potentials.

How the sail sets now. Note baggy leech. Sprit angle is too high, more like a gaff. A sprit rig is preferred over gaff because of ease of set up and strike down, fits in boat, and easy to ditch. Boom folds up against mast.

What the rig would look like with a longer sprit set lower to the deck.

Where the chock for the snotter should be.

Where forward end of sprit should be.
