MATCH YOUR MAST TO YOUR SAIL

One of the most important choices you make when rigging a sail is which mast you put in the mast sleeve. Or, more specifically the length, curve and stiffness of the mast, and how closely these parameters match the sail. The mast is quite literally the backbone of the rig and it governs the sail's performance.
