What kind of sail boat does this sail go to?

hi, does anyone know what kind of boat this main sail goes to? The dimensions are approx: Luff 34 ft, foot 13' 8" and leach 47'5". thanks! and btw the sail is for sale also, as it will not fit my boat...

Those dimensions seem impossible to me. You almost have leech = luff + foot, which means the angle at the tack is almost 180 degrees.

167 degrees, to be precise.

I think it's an Irwin 39, although I agree with Adam that the dimensions are suspect.

Judging by the logo it's definitely a mainsail from an Irwin 39 but the dimensions are bogus.

Ha ha yeah I think I really calculated something wrong there in the leach lol... I had to add to measurements to get the leach, and math was never my strong point... It is a pretty curved and weird shaped sail tho...

US SAILING Home under OFFSHORE menu is PHRF racing link. Under there is a list of critical dimemnsions for boats. Look for one with P and E that match the Luff and foot of headsail. ignore the leech number.
