Just as on a larger sailboat, the Bancroft Sportsail's fittings are adjustable. The boom vang can be raised and lowered via a threaded fitting, and the jib boom and sail positions can be adjusted by tensioning the included rigging.

Functional Rudder

A deep rudder provides positive control even when at extreme heeling angles.
