Precision Sails
« on: May 11, 2019, 10:00:55 PM »
When I moved my 28 to Lake Ontario I bought a new main and a #2 Genoa from North, that was plenty for down there, now on Lake Okanagan with an average wind speed of 5kph the #2 is too small and too heavy to perform well.
I ordered a #1 from Precision Sails in Victoria, the locals have been buying sails from them for the last few years and seem quite happy with them, hopefully I will be too.

My main is still nice and crinkly, used to sail on just the #2 quite a bit we would get up to 6.5 knots easy like that, no need to bother with the other sail at all so it didn't get a whole lot of use.

Looking forward to doing more than .65 knots.

I took a bit of time to measure and I’d like to see if you would share the worksheet on your 32 with me to compare with??

Mine is a 28 so probably not what you want but will share it if you do.
