  • Apart from the new sails there is one other serviceable set and a spinnaker.
  • The ropes and blocks are all available.
  • The second main has been reduced in size to the first reef on purpose and is a loose-footed sail now.
  • This was done because the Super Seal is a bit tender above force 4 and by a force 5 the first reef is very advisable.
  • The logic behind the cut down main is if the weather forecast includes a 5 or above it is not useful to over stretch a new main and the cut down main can be hoisted instead. The work was done professionally by Saunders.
