C&C30MK1 Sail identification

I went to the Marina today and hoisted up the sails I have to try and identify them. This first shot is what I think is the Gen 155% but I dont know for sure. Please take a look and see if you know this sail. Its made by Scott. I found an old paper in the records for the boat its like aquote from it has a sailmaker coop 150% genoa, 395sf,. 5 oz. with leach line with conningham.Here is a photo of the one I think they are talking a bout.

15%?

I also hoisted what I think to be a 155% Genoa maybe a racing sail. It has the hull number on it that is the same on my main sail? Here is a photo of it. Please let know what you think I have here.

Re: C&C30MK1 Sail identification

Will this sail trim to the inside of the rail? or to the lee of the rail?

Re: C&C30MK1 Sail identification

looks like a 135 and 150. the 135 should be 7 or 8 ounce fabric

Re: C&C30MK1 Sail identification

I think the 1st one is a 150-155. My 150 sheet leads to about the base of the rearmost stanchion, which is about where the 1st one would lead to. I'd guess the 2nd is a 170 or a drifter. Looks like pretty light cloth. If you look at my little photo that's my #1 which is about a 154.

Re: C&C30MK1 Sail identification

I don't want to hijack your thread but I have a question: Did you install the jib track yourself? I have a 79 C&C MK1 and I have been contemplating installing a jib track so I don't have to deal with moving the block up and down the toe rail not to mention life line interference with the sheet. I also noticed the placement is back toward the cockpit. How's that working with your smaller Genoa?

Thanks,
Aaron

Re: C&C30MK1 Sail identification

track placement is widely variable on the mk 1. My tracks run from about the forward portlight to the aftmost stanchion (forward of the stern pulpit). This will handle everything from a storm jib to about a 140. Unfortunately this ends about a foot too far forward for proper sheeting angle and adjustment on my 154. I get around this by sheeting my 154 to the toerail. However, this opens up the slot and I'm sure I could get another few degrees upwind if I could move the block inward. I am contemplating adding another short length of track starting about where the current one ends and going aft to about the secondary winch. I'll deal with lifeline and stanchion interference. Mounting is difficult due to the cabin liner which will have to be "dissected" to get backing plates in there.
I have seen other Mk1s where they put a short length of track on the cockpit coaming just forward of the secondary. This is a really easy and strong installation. However, this gives a bad sheeting angle to the winch. If I were to have mounted the tracks in the first place (originally done 30+ years ago) I would have lengthened the track about 18" and mounted it as far inboard as possible. Sheeting to the toerail is a simple solution for everything except maximum upwind work.

Re: C&C30MK1 Sail identification

Are these light air sales or are they racing sails?

Hey,
I did not install the track. The PO did. He was a Single handed sailer. I have to reposition the the block with each differnt head sail. I dont like the setup. But I have 5 to 8 people on the boat when we sail. It could see why he used it this way if I were by my self. looking at all the races he won-"15" and placed in "26" he was doing somthing right? Looks like he used the 2 sails in the photo for racing in light air, and light air is what we have here in the charleston / Beaufort area. I also may not have the block in the correct position as I have not flown the 2 sails in the photo yet. They sacre me. look very big? Let me know your thoughts and what you would change.

Thanks,
Capt. Curt.
