Niklas Zennström talks about his latest Fast40 RAN7 which was built in the UK at Carrington boats and designed by Shaun Carkeek.
With an all carbon fibre construction, Rán has a minimalistic layout with halyard locks to reduce the size and number of winches. Control lines adjust the position of the headsail clew and the spinnaker drop system below deck is state of the art.
The single grinder pedestal and trimming positions are aft to keep crew weight to the back of the boat. The helm position is behind the main sheet trimmer, and forward of the tactician.
