Sailing 3

Sapphire cruising

Cruising along, having fun on a nice sunny day with some mates

Sapphire under spinnaker

Its very easy to sail any multihull with a spinnaker as no pole is required. The sail is simply tacked down to the windward bow and sheeted as normal from the lee stern


The standard Strider has dinghy style kick up rudders, but when we built Striderman we used the kick up semibalanced rudders that we also use on our bigger designs (Sagitta, Eclipse, Banshee etc). This rudder design gives more positive steering, but is not possible to steer with the rudders in the up position. Drawings are available on request.
