    I'm just curious whether somebody has a good diagram of how the sheeting is handled for the overlapping gennaker on these boats it looks like a great system and allows for fast tacks, seems to spread the sheet loads effectively and looks to give good adjustability of sail shape. I can see there is a purchase with a block and one line goes to the sail slide another seems to go back to a winch on the coaming. Several lines head to a block above the tramp then seem to mount to the float in two positions.

    Looks like a basic (but more complex) barber hauler system with extra lines for clew positioning up and down, in and out.

    Thanks Gary, I found this photo on the Krys Ocean Race site which made it a bit more clear.

    Jacques de Reuck has a simplified arrangement on his much modified Piver 24 - which pretty much does the same thing.

    its just done because the correct sheeting angle is always on the tramp so no hard points to sheet from
