I need Sail measurements for a Westerly 33 ketch. Im not going to get a chance to make the measurements myself and have not been able to find an owners manual online.

Anyone have this information?

Hey Psyched,

Some sailmakers will have the dimensions for sails by boat make/model.
I checked www.sailwarehouse.com but they don't seem to list Westerly boats (they have the dimensions for my Tartan 27). Because Westerly was a UK based builder I'd expect sail lofts in the UK would have the dimensions for sails for Westerly boats.
Specifically you need the I, J, P, E measurements. Hope this link works for Bacon Sails which does list the Westerly brand.
Sail search page

You have to enter "Westerly" as the boat make and then the model.

Nice! I had looked at one or two and didnt see any and figured I would go this route while I had the time for this to be an option.

Im going to go back to looking that way. :D

Hi,

There were at least 7 different Westerly models in the 33-34' range. If you want to figure out which one you own, try Sailboatdata.com. The list the Rig Dimensions I, J, P and E, as well as LOA, displacement, and pictures of the boats and rigs.

For sails to fit properly, you'll need to fill out a sailmaker's measurement form completely or have a sailmaker measure your boat. I, J, P and E rig dimensions are adequate for the purposes of getting a price quote for a sail, but they are not enough information to build a sail that fits properly.

For a lot of good information about Westerly mains, jibs, genoas and spinnakers, I invite you to visit Hyde Sails Direct page on Westerly sailboats and sail quotes.
