    Hi again Jonny

    Take a look at this topic ( ..I had forgotten about it...).

    Hi Arne!

    Great looking sailplan. I think I have a copy of it somewhere on my computer.

    I wonder if anyone has gone through with the conversion?

    Hi Jonny,

    for some reason  -  I've forgotten which  -  I had a go last year on studying that boat with several JR options. These are stored in my album, so if you open the one below, you can click your way through other versions.

    Frankly, I think the version below, the sloop with AR = 2.10 and batten length of only 4.00m, makes most sense. The short chord of the sail will make downwind steering fairly easy, even with that smallish rudder, and the mast should fit between the berths.

    Hi everyone!

    I recently got to see a Westerly Pageant up close, and thought that the design  would make a fantastic , solo person's cruiser .. of course , after a proper JR conversion.

    I was wondering if it's been done? and if there is anyone one on here that has one?

    I'd love to see pictures and hear how it works.



    p.s. I'm still quite happy with Sabra! Just daydreaming.
