Hello, this is my first post (I'm a new westsail 32 owner in Ireland) and I apologise if this is covered in another thread. I searched online and could not find this anywhere.

My question is around the best way to rig up the staysail on a westsail 32 with the staysail boom attached. My specific problem is how to connect the staysail to the staysail boom at the clew end. Does anyone have a good picture showing how this is rigged. At the moment, I have a rope tied to the clew and brought back to the bow end of the staysail boom. This does not seem to provide much tension nor can I loosen or tighten it while under sale.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,

jcjacks

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
