Stu Bannatyne

Four-Time Winner of the Volvo Ocean Race

“Matching forestay tension to the wind and sails is key to upwind performance “

Eddie Warden-Owen

Former Sailmaker and America’s Cup Coach

“Forestay sag is measured by forestay load, and controlled by rig and backstays. Accurate knowledge of forestay sag enables you to repeatedly adjust this to give the optimum sail shape for best performance throughout the race”

Hannah Diamond

Ocean Race Competitor and Olympic Campaigner

“Installing smarttune is as simple as taking turns off a turn screw to adjust the mast rake – this is definitely a system anyone can install on their boat.”
