Last night was our first race of the summer series, and we started off with new headsails. Here’s a short video of them. The new #2 is black and sinister, while the new #1 looks deceivingly innocent!
Fit seems to be pretty good for both sails. They’ll need some time to lose their creases from storage, but a couple of stiff breezes will take care of that.
The new #1 has a couple of flaws though: some holes in the fabric — you can see us spotting them at the tail end of the video, and here’s some photos. I’m sure North Sails will sort this out.
