Shopping for new sails?
I mentioned a couple weeks ago that Rebecca and I finally had the chance to meet up with Jamie and Behan on Totem. If you don’t follow their story, you’re probably not be aware that in his former life, Jamie was a sailmaker. In fact, he still is!
Recently, Jamie published a few articles on sails, which I am told are considered somewhat controversial to certain people in the industry. Personally, I thought they were both amusingly written, and educational! It definitely cast some doubt on some assumptions that I had about sails. Unless you’re cruising on a trawler like a few of our friends, I think you should check them out.
Adjusting luff tension. 🙂
While I have no first hand knowledge of working with Jamie to purchase new sails, I know that when the time comes that we are shopping, we’ll definitely be speaking to him.
