Nacra 570 Jib Measurements  Bottom

  • Hey everyone, I need to replace the jib on my Nacra 5.7. I am thinking I would like to get a 570 blade jib made instead in anticipation of eventually getting a 570 mainsail. Can anyone help me out with the measurements? Also any comments on a blade jib vs. the traditional overlapping jib?

  • Someone please respond, I want to know too. Wolf man, do the 5.7 and 570 have the same mast length?
    The 570 is 30 and I was thinking my 5.7 is 31 but don't really know.

  • Pretty sure the mast is identical. There were some slight adjustments to the hull shape, the oval beams, and inter rudder system but I think the mast is the same.

  • Yeah the 5.7 and 570 masts are both 29ft 9 inches.

  • The blade jib is going to allow the point to point higher, while sacrificing off-wind power. Personally I would keep the bigger jib unless you decided put the blade on a self tacker and add a spin.

    This is really helpful, thanks! Would like to know the jib dimensions for the same reason.

    Also, with apologies for the hijack, does anyone know what the 570 Sport spin pole dimensions are (diameter x length)?

    Sorry Nac. I posted that somewhere, maybe a few years ago...but I can’t find it now. I’ve got the measurements somewhere, maybe on an old computer that no longer lives, but I can’t find it right now. I’ll keep looking.
