We find out how Ecover's unique double diamond rotating wingmast works
Following on from part one of this video, so Graham Tourell (aka Gringo) talks us through the unique rotating wingmast arrangement on Mike Golding's Open 60 Ecover. The rig including two sets of diamonds rotate, while the shrouds and spreaders remain fixed. Tourell also looks at the halyards and locks they use and describes the features of their new semi-Taffeta covered 3DL square topped mainsail - nice! Click here to see the video. NB: This video is formatted to play in Windows Media Player and is 36MB in size - therefore only suitable for those with broadband connections. Mac users can now view WMV files by downloading a suitable add on to Quicktime - we for example use Flip4Mac which works a treat. The only noticable difference is that while the clip will play out while downloading on a PC, on a Mac it must download first.
