Is the sail a 'taped luff' or a 'boltroped luff'?????
If the sail is boltroped, now is the time to measure the exact luff dimensions so that 'when' the boltrope shrinks (due to stretch-release of hoisting and sail loads) it can 'more easily' be readjusted or "eased" back to its proper dimension. For aggressive sailing a boltrope probably needs to be eased after each seasons sailing; if you have the precise (as measured - actual) dimensions such easing is quite simple .... and will VASTLY extend the service life of a woven dacron sail.
Challenge High Aspect is a very very good sail material - enjoy!!!

Thanks for the report. I'm sure you'll love it. I race on a 30 footer that went with an evolution dacron sail and it's very nice. Are you signed up for gov cup this year? Last 2 have been on other boats for me, but this year Audrey will be on the line.

Rich - I think that it's a taped luff but will check.

Z - Not signed up yet. Gathering crew. One of my principles (the guy who put the hole in Audrey) can't make it. But others probably will. Should firm up in the next few days. With a new genoa, new main, fully functional centerboard, and reworked spinnaker pole, I'd like to see if the cash outlay will show an improvement at the finish line! Hopefully, we'll see you in Annapolis. We stay in Ego Alley Thu night - we'll look for you.

Sabre..I bought a similarly constructed sail...same material from Quantum this year, They also had great customer service came to the boat twive...once to measure and once to fit. I did go with the 4 full batens ( top 2 have interchangable oners for lkight and heacy air) and got a strong track system. We view our sailing like yours..Criuising with an attitude sometimes. PM me what you paid as I am changinhg our 155 jib next year and want to see comparitively the cost.

Sabre, what does it cost to keep the boat overnight on ego alley? I was thinking of moving it up the weekend before but not sure. Boat is on solomons right now.
