New sails arrive.

Today the new sails, designed and built by Ultimate Sails and sponsored by Fasthosts, arrive.

Lots of jobs to do first, such as removing the old mainsail.

After a long process of fitting the C-Tech battens the new carbon main goes up and fits perfectly. The sail has been cut slightly different to the old one to allow for some modifications I am planning to make to the boat.
The Solent jib was next and after some changes to the halyard system and a trip up the mast, that too was hoisted and set up. Then it was a case of taking it all off again, removing the battens and batten boxes and packing it up to go away to Ocean Art to be branded. Must remember to keep the batten boxes and screws somewhere safe!
