Bowsprit

Bowsprit

A bowsprit is used to extend the tack of the foresail in front of the boat, thus permitting the boat to carry a larger sail area. At the same time, the center of effort is moved forward, which stabilizes the boat, allowing you a steadier sailing course and speed. Since the foresail is moved in front of the boat, there is less disturbed air coming from the mainsail which, in effect, simplifies the sail handling.

Bowsprits are usually easily installed and they come in aluminium or carbon.
