Shiny new sail

My new sail was finished by Leitch & McBride here in Sidney on Friday, so I figured I might as well put it on the boat and go for a sail today. Nice sail, well made and some really nice touches like a sewn on patch to remind you when you have it furled with the UV the wrong way. Fits perfectly of course, the advantage of having it measured and made by a custom sailmaker.
Should last a good few years.

First hoist


Tack detail


Oh look, it's a sail, all trimmed and so on

Really is a nice looking sail. I'm jealous. Don't you love the crackly sound new sails make?

Re: Shiny new sail

Yep, almost a shame to have to put them up.
