Re: Sail for a escape cha cha

I think the easiest thing to do would be to buy a used small windsurfing sail (4.5 m should work) and have it trimmed to size based on the mast height. The windsurfing sails slide over the mast in a sleeve, which is the same system the cha cha is using. Cut it to length and have the bottom trimmed on both sides with sail tape. You will want to reinforce the corners for the down haul and out haul lines with some extra sail tape if the sail ends up losing them. Or reuse the corners that came with the sail by stitching them in the new corners. If you decide to go that route let me know. I have some extra windsurfing sails for cheap.

Re: Sail for a escape cha cha

Thanks for the help. I tried all of the used sail places, not a one was able to find anything. I worked backwards, tracking down the guys who developed and made these boats, and where they worked now. Ends up one works at Northsails. First they said it was highly unlikely they would have anything to help. Then they got back with me and someone has found the dimensions and design for the sail. One is being made and I should have it in about 6 weeks. Through the track of emails, I would say they really went out of their way to help me find one.
Alls well that ends well!

Re: Sail for a escape cha cha

One picture I saw on the internet looked like the sail was made by North Sails, you might check with them.


Or get a blue tarp and a sewing machine! ;-)

Re: Sail for a escape cha cha

Not sure where you are located, but various used sail vendors may be worth a look. Minney's, Bacon's, Sail Traders, Masthead Sailing Gear, Mauri Pro ... you get the idea.

Re: Sail for a escape cha cha

Thanks for the info. I talked with them last year, and they never stocked parts for the cha cha, only the other models. They still have one for the next model up, but it would be too big for the mast.
