The HIT Masts finn mast has secured medals at the olympic games, with  2000 – silver for Luca Devoti (ITA), 2004 – silver for Rafa Trujillo (ESP)  and 2008 – bronze for Guillaume Florent (FRA).

Each mast is custom built to the requirements of the sailor and sailmaker enabling a perfect combination. As a result of a consistent manufacturing process it is also simple to replicate a previously built mast to within the tolerances that are necessary for a good combination with the sail.
