Malaya is sloop rigged with a removable forestay for heavy weather. All her working sails were built in 2015 by Mack Sails in Stuart Fl from Bainbridge Challenge Sail Cloth. Her Main carries three reefs and rests in a Mack Pack sail cover when not in use. Her Genoa is 120% radial cut hoisted on a Furlex furler.
We carry an ATN storm jib that zips over the roller furled genoa when needed and a storm trysail.

Primary navigation on board Malaya is done the old fashion way with paper charts, dividers and parallel rules. Course and speed info is kept in a formal log and a DR position is maintained as required by visibility and distance from land. On passages the sights are taken of celestial bodies as weather and sea conditions permit. These sights are reduced and plotted and then compared with any electronic position data we might have.
