HD Sails have been working with John Gimson in developing their Albacore sails. Currently John is Iain Percy’s training partner in the Star, so hasn’t managed to be out on the circuit much this year as his commitments have been working with Iain towards his Olympic campaign.
Developments took place last year with John finishing 3rd at his first attempt at the nationals held in Llandudno. More developments over the winter has seen more free area gained in the jib to help downwind performance.
The mainsail and Jib have been made using Contender RS4 which is a high aspect ratio cloth with a fine ripstop. The fine ripstop helps prevent polykote tears and crazing whilst giving great longevity.
Sails come with windows, tell tales, numbers sail bags and battens
Mainsail £699.00 inc VAT
Jib £288.00 inc VAT
Please call Andy or Jim for further information.
