windrose 22

Picked up a windrose 22 thats been sitting for a few years. Started cleaning boat, raised the mast and hook sail bar and sail setting ropes and pullies. Don't understand the rigging for the frount sail. I have the sails, but have not taken them out for fear of damaging them. Any pictures or advice would be very welcomed!

Re: windrose 22

I also have a recently acquired Windrose 22. Headsail/jib on mine has hanks to clip to the forestay, and simply an outhaul line running up the mast to a pulley and down to a hook to pull the sail up the forestay to the mast. There is another pulley on the deck near the bow tack to add a line to pull it back down to the deck from the cockpit, but I need to buy more line to add that. The jib working lines are attached to the sail, and run back to the cockpit winches. Pretty basic.

Check out the Yahoo group "Lost Laguna Sloops" for other Windrose owners. Laguna went out of business in 1988 so it can be a little tough to find information.

Re: windrose 22

I suggest that you read a basic sailing book... heaps of them around... and they will give you generic info that will answer lots of those queries for yourself.

Then you can post more specific questions here on CF, and we all will pitch in to answer them. When you don't even have the basic vocabulary, it is hard to ask questions that mean much to us!

Cheers and good luck with your new toy
