Sail Cover and Ladyjacks
Carbon Main—Sanders 2019. Fully Battened and little use.
Pentex Main Sanders. Fully battened reasonable condition and shape
Vectran Main Sanders. Fully battened. Older but still holding sail shape well
Dacron—Partially battened older and not used for several years but believed to be in usable condition.
All the mains are fitted with Stainless Steel Tidesmarine slugs.
The longer battens for the 3 fully battened mains are the same length so you can carry a spare sail plus top batten and not have to carry full length battens.
There is a complete set of battens for the Dacron but not used for several years.
Owners comment—As long as they are properly covered when not in use there is 10+ yrs worth of mainsail use. The sails have a total of 4 sets of Tidesmarine slides which can be re-used.
Wild Spirit was fitted with a Flatdeck furling system around January 2018 and the Carbon Genoa made for it. The Vectran has extension loop to fit and the Pentex a luff extension tape.
Carbon Genoa –Sanders 2017 –lovely sail. Quick change hooks.
Pentex—Sanders—some repairs but holding shape well
These 2 have no UV strips but there is a full Genoa Sock by Sanders in good condition
Vectran – plenty of cruising life left and UV strip
Furling Heavy Weather Jib—Sanders--Vectran, little used, Quick change hooks.
