Re: North Sails Direct fiasco
Interesting Jeff. We started our circumnavigation with two new North sails, a #2 and an asymmetric and they have been terrific, especially the #2 which now had been used for more than 20,000 miles and still seems decent. The only repairs to the two sails have been for chafe issues at the corners and along the foot.
Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
