I have other problems with the wrap-around sails -1, can''t afford to have new ones made,
2, they are usually too heavy to be effective
in light air, 3, don''t allow mounting of lights, radar etc on the mast.
I have an opportunity to buy newer carbon fibre spars
with sail tracks which would solve some problems but am considering redoing the boat
with a single mast rig ( conventional ). Has
anyone seen this done ? My old boat was a cutter rig and performed very well most of
the time, (rigged it to plans myself)
anyone with experience with the Freedoms pls
