Sana is a beautiful sight to see on Sydney Harbour. I've admired her many times while out sailing on my little bluebird or racing across the harbour in the work tender. She always seems to be under full sail, which must be an indication of how easy to rig the topsail must be. The wishbone rig allows for easy tacking and easy reefing and as soon as a sail gets hard to handle, you simply drop it and carry on with the others. Sana is a welcome regular at the Sydney Amateur's biennial 'Gaffers Day'. Her graceful lines and 4 sail rig lend her the presence and romanticism of an 18th century tall ship. Beautiful teak decks, bronze portholes and chrome dorades complete the picture. Down below is sparse by modern standards but welcoming and bright with white bulkheads and blonde timbers. This lovely classic is fast inshore and offshore, while easy to handle and comfortable to cruise. Well presented and very well maintained, this is your opportunity to own this beautiful classic boat.

Mast / Rigging
Ketch main-trysail rig with wishbone booms on foresails
The boat has no sheet winches! Each sail is small enough to be managed without. Once the pressure builds, you drop the sail and continue with others. This becomes a natural reefing system.
There are 2 halyard winches on the mast.
