Check out Precision Sails in Victoria BC. They have a great on-line site. Sails
are made Asia somewhere but inspected and shipped from BC. I got a 135 and
asym from them this year. Very happy with the product and price.

Subject: Stus-List Mainsail replacement considerations
Just received the results from the fall check-up and the local sail loft has
diagnosed Windstar's ('85 33-2) mainsail as "beyond expired". Cue the Monty
The current main has two sets of reef points, (cringle at the leech and and
ring-on-webbing-straps at the luff.)
No telltales other than streamers off the leech.
IIRC there may be a leech line.
4 partial battens battens.
There are two cringles at the clew, one above the other, and what I believe is
called a "shelf" of lighter weight cloth along the foot. Have never used this
out of ignorance, but perhaps I should.
it has a rope foot, slides on the luff.
I will have Rolly Tasker in Thailand quote, as well as UK sails here in Toronto.
I value the 33-2's performance but most of my sailing is recreational sailing
here on Lake Ontario. Would like to distance race but not looking to be
ultra-competitive at the top level. Don't want to buy another Main for
this boat in the next decade.
Any thoughts or recommendations on a replacement, or comments on sail lofts?
