Replying to:fully battened sails
We have an original Mk111 swing keel with original mast, rigging, back stay and soft sails. We are under powered and uncompetitive in mixed fleet racing in under 15 knots wind, particularly on a work, competitive from 15 knots up. I am not sure how much of the problem is us and how much is our sails. How much improvement could we expect from new fully battened sails? What is the performance difference between soft and fully battened? Would appreciate any comments.
