    So I've ordered a 135

    So i've decided on a 135 for my summer headsail. It was a bit difficult to decide between that or something bigger, but I figure the 135 will be a good compromise. I don't really like sailing with...

    Finally measured lp

    So I finally took out the tape measure to my headsail. With LP of 13.25, it turns out it's actually a 90%JIB not a genoa at all. It is a bit tricky to judge LP because the clew is 5' above deck so...

    Purple Haze

    The PO had that sail made and got a discount on the purple cloth, apparently nobody likes purple sails?

    Gale Warning

    This is what it looks like here during a gale warning. The best time to sail here is Feb - June; if it is blowing hard in the strait you can usually subtract about 10-15kts and that's what you will...
