I know it is a little delayed but now the arrangements are made it is time to make the announcement.
Many of you will know we have been looking at how we are going to obtain the next batch of sail cloth. Many discussions and hours of work led us to a vote and finally a decision.
Sail Shape are now our sole sailmaker. They do an excellent job and are ready for your orders. There has been a huge amount of work done and we have an agreement in place to outline the relationship between the association and Sail Shape. Members can view this agreement in the members section.
We would like to thank Ullman Sails for all of the work they have done for the class over the years, powering much of the fleet for several years.
Now for the bit you have all been waiting for… DISCOUNTS!…
I have no doubt that many of you will be looking to purchase a suit of Sail Shape sails so that you can race next years championship in the newest rig. Discounts are available when sails are ordered in groups of 5 or more. We can coordinate those that wish to get discount – go to the new ‘sails’ section of the website and fill out the form, then we will get in touch when there are 5 or more people ready to order.
Remember, when you get your new Sail Shape sails, there is a rig tuning guide based on R249 Lyonesse and Sail Shape sails in the members section of the website. A basic starting point would be to add an extra 10mm of chock on top of your Ullman sails settings but do check out the guide for much more detail.
