Apart from a fast hull form, a well balanced rig is paramount for the optimum performance of a sailing vessel. We have designed practical and fast rigs and sail sets for very dissimilar sailing vessels. For the design of a rig we use in house developed spreadsheets for calculating the helm balance and the required strength of spars and rigging.
For the production of drawings we use the following software: AutoCAD (AutoDesk Inc, San Rafael, CA, USA).
For the calculation of riggings we use various in house developed spreadsheets.
