I'm going off memory now, but I think the lacing line goes all the way to the head of the sail.
I'm pretty sure it's the original sail - it has the Bristol logo on it.
Faster, thanks for the graphic, that's exactly how it looks.
So thanks for the explanation George - my understanding now is that my issue is that the line is way too loose. When the sail is fully raised, there is still lots of looseness in the lacing line. I should adjust it so it is tensioned when the halyard is fully raised.
George I'll be around on the boat this weekend and will send you a pm in a moment.
The good news is that she sailed very well last weekend in this state so it can only get better!
