Double channels, built masts - looks like an American Down Easter built a bit earlier here. The ship's architect once worked in the USA perhaps?
Interesting the holes in the sails, the theory first put forth by an Italian shipmaster in the eighties was that dead air in the belly of the sail acted as a buffer and so was detrimental to the sail's effect. Since modern racing yachts has not adopted it, it probably was a theory built on thin air? Regards, Stein.
