Testing the Big Rig

Thunderbird 2012 with big rig

Our massive big rig for light wind conditions has been tested for the first time. The biggest rig of Thunderbird 2012 is 30% larger than the medium rig, and a massive 80% larger than the smallest rig, as shown on the picture below. Lately our focus has been on getting all the sailing related details of the boat as good as they can get. The attention to detail on setting up the proper sail trim on Thunderbird 2012 is one of our biggest weapons in the upcoming competition in June.
