VIDEO – Classic Canoe Yawl Ethel designed by George Holmes 150 years ago. Rigging it with one of our Oz Goose sails to recreate the original Balance lug main reduced rigging time from near an hour to about 10 minutes and resolved several handling problems. AJ is very happy to have turned a less than perfect boat into a peach. Video has great sailing footage of the Lower Murray River In South Australia.
Joost and Koos used three of our sails in the Lauwersmeer RAID event in the Netherlands. The 50 square foot mylar sleeve luff canoe sail on the Viola and Artemis canoes and the 105 sq ft balance lug on Joost and Viola’s Goat Island Skiff “GISwerk”.
Tanbark sails and other fabrics available by direct order.
Price drop of $100 on our larger sails – Oz and Goat Island Skiff. Also announcing that we can make sails for many more types of boats as we are getting the sails laser cut to our designs.
John was looking for more oomph for his NorthEaster Dory by CLC. He decided to try the RSS 89 square foot lug sail. He found himself sailing happily alongside Lasers for an extended period, causing puzzled looks from the young Laser sailors. Boat handles much better too.
