Twissel rig for sale. £700 - 2 identical purpose made foresails to fit twin groove furling gear, plus 2 hinged carbon fibre poles, plus all the fittings. All like new. Used for 2 ARCS with no signs of wear. (Clews, head, foot, pole connections etc. all stainless, so no wear)

The poles are hinged over the foredeck with the hinge controlled by an uphaul to the masthead and a downhaul to the bow. They spread the twin sails controlled by the sheets to allow downwind sailing much more controllable than a spinnaker, and capable of being furled quickly. Unlike a spinnaker, it lifts the bow in a gust so much less chance of a broach. The whole sail pivots around the forestay, so that the boat can happily sail with no main, far less rolling, and with the wind from direct astern to 45 degree either way. More than that, and you merely let one sail lay on top of the other, and treat as a single foresail. Brilliant. Will suit 35 to 45 foot boat.

Hi Rod, is this still for sale? How long are the poles? We’ve got a 47ft boat so wondering if it will be a bit small...
