I think my second FF, 3644, had a twin track arrangement for the jib cars… but I might not have had them since!
Well, they could be making a comeback!! Did you watch the video two blog-posts below this? Very interesting and beautifully done custom made. Note the main tracks are on custom made “pods” and even further inboard than those on the Ovington boat. The idea here is to sheet closer to the centre line and then “barber” outward via the second track when you’re offwind….
