Judel/Vrolijk Yacht Design – IRC72 Boat Captain / Project manager – Stuart Branson.
STAYINPHASE has steadily overhauled & refined the winch system for the JETHOU team, who have sought a winch system that is configured for the way the Maxi72’s are now equipped and sailed. Drive ratios have been optimised following changes in system layout on deck.
Sections of the system received extensive work to correct alignment issues dating back to the construction phase. Most recently, we have re-positioned the hydraulic pump and overhauled the pit winch driveline.
