    Another option is to tension the sail and if running with the wind, pull your boom in a little. Yes you will lose a little speed and are technically sailing by the lee, but a death roll can be...

    Another thing to consider with these rigs. When running downwind you want to be careful not to allow the top spar to swing forward of the mast. This could happen if the sail is not tensioned...

    Looks good. :) It looks bigger than 35 sqr ft, but it could be an illusion.

    At the Rutland Water meet in June, there will be some training on paddle sailing if anyone is interested.

    I find myself agreeing with Greg to a large extent SMwhistle My full setup now requies hiking out racks as well as outriggers to keep it upright. In light winds it will still find enough wind to keep...

    Yes the 44 mast tends to be half an inch wider, so you would need to make your mast thwart hole bigger. As for the mast foot, just push a section of one and a half inch tube inside the bottom of your...

    I have a feeling that you would be lucky to find a second hand Expedition Bermudan sail given that they are still quite new and they offer a wider range of wind speeds so people are more likely to...

    Hi Passamaquoddy,

    The Rutland Water meet should be a briliant meet for you, especially if you get yourself a decent sailing rig. Learning to sail is so liberating. As we get older, we tend to lose...
