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.
A guide to assessing suitability of the RSS sails for other designs. Discussion, guide, explanation of terms and factors and full dimensions and centres.
Finally! On the water photos for Really Simple Sails. We’ve been happy with the teams workmanship for several months. The photos show the designer’s (me) work is up to scratch too.
Sails for the Goat Island Skiff and Oz Racer and PDRacer series of boats are now available from Duckworks in the USA at very reasonable prices. Developed by Michael Storer for ReallySimpleSails Philippines

The two versions of the OzRacer use the same sails. The more racing oriented OzRacer Mk2 and the more family oriented OzRacer RV. It is also suitable for many OzGoose and PDGoose designs as well as many of the original PDRacers. The OzRacer is meant to be a simple sailing boat that is very easy […]
The Goat Island Skiff is now up to $400 cheaper to get on the water because of reduced sail cost. The GISby Michael Storer is well known for having excellent sailing performance.
