New rig for Design 077

We have just added a set of plans for Gunter Rig to this design. In this version she is a cutter, although the staysail is really optional, so she could equally well be a sloop.

But because the genoa is set out on the bowsprit end (OK – it's not a very long bowsprit ...), it might be useful to retain the staysail for heavier weather. I reckon she should be very comfortable under heavier conditions with a couple of reefs in the main and the staysail.

The rig seems to suit her nicely.
