This rule permits any hullshape, so they are all different. In the past they had a gaff rig, but from the thirties they were all converted to bermuda rigs. Today some are again converted back to the gaff rig and I think it could be used on this as well. Especially now when we have high tech composite spars. Remember, this kind of boat is not for offshore sailing and the mainsail area is lifted as high as possible to get good winds in between the islands. Fun sailing
