My Sail Inventory, Episode 31

A5 leeward fwd

Reaching with A5

With summer fading and fall in the air, it is a great time to get out on the water.  Summer crowds are gone and water is still warm. We are just back from a four day trek that took us to Noank, CT to visit friends.  Kincora is a fantastic boat for the two of us.

I have been asked about my sail inventory which is still a work in progress.  I believe in big cross overs, and carrying as few sails as possible.  With the option of masthead and fractional kites that opens up a lot of choices.  Having added a very nice A5 this season I feel the only time for a symmetrical is when I am deeper then 150 apparent.  So only one MH runner is needed.  There could be an option for a fractional symmetrical for deep running in bigger breeze.  But that is not high on my list for this winter.

If you are racing/trekking singlehanded, let me know what boat you have, and your inventory.  Always great to share and learn from the shorthanded gang.

Hop on board and let me show you my inventory and how I feel each works and their sweet windows.  Link: Episode 31 My Sail Inventory
