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.
In South Africa doing lots of boat stuff. Departure north from Cape Town around December 15th. Arrival in the Caribbean around the beginning of February, after 5300 miles or so.
