2011 September: recieved mail and pictures from Greg Simmons:  "We sailed the boat from Gothenburg to Lulea, Sweden back in June".
"The mast is mounted on a tripod that is built into the boat.  The rig has a total of 20 stays (10 per side) and is it is quite difficult to get it to be straight with 20 turnbuckles!
But, the mast can be trimmed on land and then there are only 2 stays per side that hold it up, so it is actually a little less complicated once the mast is properly trimmed.  There are no back stays or running back stays and the boom is fixed vertically.  Kick is done by using both an outhaul and an uphaul.  All in all, the boat is really easy to sail.
