Post by SoggyBadger » Mon Mar 12, 2012 11:33 am

Does anyone have the class rules/measurements for the spars and sails for a Gull?
Best wishes

Sorry, I didn't notice that, have you tried looking at the other pages? There is something on sails, there I think, atleast when I had a look on them there was.

I'm 85% sure I have the drawings for the original gunter sailplan, which I'd expect to have measurements on, but I don't have class rules or any measurements for the bermudan mast. However the luff length was the same with both because you could put a gunter sail up on a bermudan mast.

Hi Jim,

I'd be very much obliged if you could sort them out for me some time.

Cheers

If Jim cannot come up trumps, my Gull has a Gunter rig .I could get any measurements you require from it perhaps ?.
It has Collar wooden masts booms etc and a really nice set of Banks sails(no kite) that were cut for the Gunter set up.
