Athena 38 Sail/Mast/Boom Measurements

Hi, Are there any Athena 38 owners out there who can give me the measurements i.e. Luff, Foot and leach of both the Main Sail and Genoa preferably for the later model which had the taller rig.

And again the measurements for the mast height off the DECK, length of boom and if possible the measurement from the gooseneck to the top of the mast.

If possible a diagram with all the measurements.

thanks
Ian

Ian,

You could also ask Incidences Voiles in La Rochelle, they supply for all the FP boats.

Thanks Alan, Didn't think of that, would they also be worth getting a quote from for a flat top main, genoa and gennaker in a crusier/racer laminate.
Cheers
Ian

I have not yet found out all the exact Luff, Foot, Leach measurements yet as I have been away and busy but I can tell you that the suggested Spinnaker is 110m2.
Hope this he;ps.

The genny and the spinnaker are not right triangles.

The spinnaker is cut very wide all the way to the shoulder and then comes in sharply at the head. The sail is also cut deep.

The genny has a much more acute angle formed at the head where the leech and luff meet so has a much higher aspect ratio and on average a narrower width from luff to leech.

If you divide the square area by the luff length you can approximate the average width.

35 / 13.7 = 2.55

93 / 13.2 = 7.0

Seems pretty approximate to me.
