New Sails

Here's the new main.

Our hull number is 188. But the sail maker felt we needed something. So the "42 W" is for Whitby 42.

I'm tying in the 3rd batten.

Since CA is taking the picture, they're not helping.

Below this batten, I have to reeve the second reef, then tie in the the first batten, and the first reef.

It weighs a ton.

And it's so stiff that we have a hard time getting it smashed down small enough to get the sail cover on it.

We really want to get out and see how this performs in comparison with the previous sails.


We've got a bunch of jobs to to that are — perhaps — more important. The water tanks being our primary focus.

We may not really get a chance to use them until fall. Really.
