General National 12 chat / Re: Speedsails tapedrive sails

A few years ago, some of you might remember, I made Terry Cooke a sort of tape drive Mainsail ( suggested by Steve Norbury) made  of 2 oz Kevlar laminate  with carbon tapes stuck on to help the stresses etc. I think this sail is still around and was quite successfull
The National Twelve rules don't have secondary reinforcing limits ( only Primary ) the body of the sail has to be capable of being folded flat. what is defined as flat is another story. But the sail passed measurement and only where the tapes converged together did you need to be carefull of the stiffening rule. We also used carbon tapes to reinforce the foot stresses from time to time.

I am pretty sure that the double floor was fitted by Paul Griffiths  before Rob owned her.
The main issue with the large jib configuration was that with a mainsail of only 2.3 ish Sq Mtrs that there was no way to depower the rig as the wind increased hence she was pretty quick upwind in light /medium conditions.
Nigel nver referred to his Asymmetric as a "spinnaker" (which is banned by the rules) he called it his downwind jib!!
The rules where altered to only allow one jib and one mainsail to be used in any Race.
Don't forget to re-register the boat -You can now do this easily online
Happy sailing

It is probable that this boat being a Mark6 vintage 1956 will not be a ribbed boat but Glued Clinker. I think that there is a strong likelyhood that all the glue joints would be suspect.
