The owner of RESOLUTE wanted to optimize the upwind performance of the classic Buzzards Bay 25 that Damian McLaughlin was building for him. He wanted to narrow up the mast section as much as possible and narrow the chainplate width so that tighter headsail sheeting angles would be possible. He wanted all of this done but did not want anything other than a traditional wooden mast section.
A custom mast section was engineered and Dynel rigging sizes specified so so as to meet this demanding set of specifications. The results show that RESOLUTE is very fast and this combined with the racing skills of the owner have produced an impressice collection of silver during the summer racing series.
