Re: Is there a professional sailmaker on this forum?

Don't know the technical description, but the cut is very simple with parallel panels. It does not have the obvious signs of reinforcement that you see on many sails but obviously the sail is very strong so the cloth itself seems to be the secret. Certainly we have not babied the sail and frequently reef the main to help the balance with the Monitor, think 5 and a half reefs.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
