New Sails...

I mentioned a few posts ago that I had some new sails made to help light weather performance.  Unfortunately I have been out of the country for the last month and haven't had a chance to test them well.  Here are a few more photos and details of the two sails I referred to recently plus a new upwind sail.

Firstly the one for using when the wind is off the aft quarter.  The first photo shows the sail attached in the center and the next one shows and alternate position.  Both positions worked well.

The next photo shows the new upwind sail which also made quite a difference to performance. 

The next photo shows how the spinnaker is fixed.

Later in the month I will be doing some more sea trials so I will be able to share with you the performance in different conditions and sail configurations.
