Patent Pending Mastless Sailboat
Instead of a mast a tripod. Two forward angled shafts, and one backward replacing the traditional rigging. The mainsail is a furling just like any furling sail. The traveller has a post that goes up to traditional boom height with a bracket on the top that supports poles either left or right. This allows huge mainsails almost like spinnakers with the point of attachment a couple of meters outside the beam.
