One of the big things we have noticed is how much easier the sails are to use than our previous ones – they set really easily and hold their shape so well. All the little details that we customised for this boat have made sail handling and manoeuvres, such as reefing, so much easier. The boat is very clearly faster. The service leading up to, getting hold of and then commissioning the sails cannot be faulted.
We have already done 5000 miles with them in a little over a month and had every configuration possible in winds up to 40 knots. There have been no issues with stretch, chafe or wear. We have pushed them downhill with boat speeds into the mid-20 knot region and then done big round ups in big breeze to get them down. The new batten system hasn’t broken one yet, which is a big improvement for us.
