Hi all !

This year, we got a new main sail to replace the original North Sail main sail. We are sailing full time in the Med since early May (you can follow us here), so we wanted a new sail we could rely on.

For our cruising, we got a Vectron main sail, cross-cut with 3 reefs.

- Vectron cloth from DP, because it is stronger that Dacron, and keeps its shape much better than Hydranet.
- Cross-cut, because it holds better (in time) when sailing reefed. Tri-radial cuts are designed to sail fully up. With kids on board, we tend to sail with reefs quite often
- 3 reefs... because 2 is not enough. With 30 knots you really want a 3rd reef.
- Full-batten, 5 battens, progressive battens.


The first month as been all "code 0 and spinnaker", then this last month as been all "2 reefs in the main". We are quite happy to have a 3rd reef ready, just in case.

So far, we are really happy with this new sail.

Unfortunately, we were not able to take the old main sail with us, as a spare sail). So, here is the important part of this topic:

We are willing to give away our old North Sails main sail (dacron, cross-cut, full-batten, 5 battens. It has just been serviced last winter and it has 3 reefs. It is waiting for you in the south of France at our sailmaker's workshop, just contact me for more details.

All the best,
nibheis

Hello!

Yes, the sail is still available! Sorry for the delay, we were sailing between Morocco and Canaries Islands :-)

Note: It has no cars (I am using them on our new sail) - so you would need to install new cars for your mast or mast rail.

Also, if you want the sail to be shipped (which is possible), I suppose that it is better not to have the battens sent (they are long, and shipping would cost more than they are worth).

Best regards,
nibheis

I guess it would be good for the next season so I would really like to take it. Shall I contact the sailmaker re shipping to our base in Greece?
Your offer is really much appreciated.

Hi,

Could you please send me your contact information in a PM (both addresses: for delivery and for billing)?
I'll then check with the sail maker to organise this. He will most probably charge something for packaging and handling the sail.

Best regards,
nibheis
