Carbon Yard for Norfolk Broads

Recently we supplied a new carbon fibre yard for the 94 year old ‘topsail’ rigged ‘Breeze’ on the Norfolk Broads. In order to achieve the required stiffness fore-aft to ensure suitable leech tension on the mainsail the new Soling Mast profile was chosen. At 105mm * 70mm with an integrated sail track this profile gave an improvement of around 50% of stiffness compared to the original carbon tube while weighing in at 13kg for a 7.5 meter spar. 

With a turn-around time of 22 days including transport to the UK the customer was pleased to get on the water at one of the important races in the Broads calendar.
