The vang is double-ended, allowing the skipper to easily play it in the puffs. The 12:1 cascade system lets the skipper quickly depower the main without taking his eyes off the racecourse.
The mainsheet is cleated on the Barney Post located in the middle of the boat and can be easily reached from a full hike. This is a great feature because you can keep the boat on its feet in a big breeze.
