Sample text

With some rig designs, the butt of the yard will pass along the hull above the deck, allowing you to have only one sheet line. On others where the yard butt passes below the gunwale, a separate sheet for each tack is needed, with the unused sheet looped around the front of the yard. The most convenient way to rig separate sheets is to use an endless loop of line with both ends terminating on the boom. While sailing with a shunting rig, you must always be aware of the possibility of back-winding.

The weather shroud is normally a running shroud that can be used to tilt the mast and sail to windward or leeward. With a bridle rigged to the outboard ends of the iakos, the shroud can be adjusted while sailing with a block and tackle. In strong winds, the mast can be tilted to windward to reduce heeling by moving some of the weight of the rig to windward and introducing a small lift component. In very light winds, shunting is easier if the mast is allowed to tilt to leeward, because it prevents the boom from trying to swing inboard.
