Details

Spreader attachment for round mast and the SAILSetc aerofoil section spreaders.

Choose the mast diameter, sweep back angle and spreader length to suit your application.

For 11 mm, 12 mm, 13 (12.7) mm or 14 mm mast diameters, 0, 5, 10 or 15 degree sweepback angles, and 50, 75 or 100 mm spreader lengths.

Choose the 100 mm length if you want to experiment with 45 & 55 mm spreader lengths on an IOM.

Spreader tips are supplied if spreaders are chosen.

Generally the length of the spreader bar will be about 60% of the distance between the mast and the shroud attachment at the deck. This makes the 50 mm size ideal for most of the narrower generation of IOM class. The 75 mm length will suit most M, 10R and 6M class. These items may not be substantial enough for A Class or similar size boats and, for this reason, are not listed in the mast fittings section for A Class.

The SAILSetc spreader material is a push fit into the spreader attachment, can be removed for transport of the rig or left in place. The spreader attachment can be permanently fitted to the mast or can be made a snap on/off fit by removing part of the tube. The spreaders are angled downward (fore and aft) so that they are aligned closely with the air flow over the mast and angled upward (transversely) to suit the general angle of the shroud. Choose the sweepback angle to suit your application - normally 5 degrees would be appropriate for most rigs.
