Recently had a military move that took us from the Chesapeake Bay down to the Emerald Coast in Florida… The wife is appreciating being able to throw on a fleece to go sailing in late November now instead of the wetsuits up in Virginia. I’m posting tonight because our new sails arrived and we threw them up after work with less than an hour till sunset and they were fantastic! I need to drop the boom a bit to trim the main more appropriately but I’m thrilled with the pointing ability and medium to low breeze performance. The other (original) sails were nearly 30 years old so no surprise there’s a little more spring in the boat’s step. The folks at SLO Sails were outstanding to work with. They sent material samples and colors that Tammy and I were able to play with until we were happy with a design and next thing you know we have beautiful fun new life in the boat. We’d picked up a boat cover from them a month ago when we moved down and I was impressed enough to give the sails a shot and I’m certainly glad I did. I’ll put up some more pics during some normal afternoon lighting over the Thanksgiving holiday so the colors will look correct but I was excited enough about the first sail that I’m putting the sunset one up for starters. Merry Happy Holidays! Say hello if you’re in the Destin/Fort Walton Beach area.
