Is this something you had made? Or has one of the replica makers branched out into different color sails now?

The sail numbers looks really sharp. I'd really like to see how it looks on the boat. Probably depends on the hull color.

I had it made Torrid.
It's going on a black hull/ dawn grey deck, white spars, grey / white rigging, black foils....
No doubt I'll post a pic on Saturday

Lolz Andy... I got it for myself for making it to 46
It was actually a toss up - a hero 3 or this sail... I've got my experia z1 but the destructions say it doesn't like salt water so I'm still vid less, for now..

Not an intensity sail. It was made by a small loft in the UK I believe. Voodoo will confirm shortly I would imagine...if he is not too excited still!

Now how cool is that?!?! The Dark Lord of Death is what people will be thinking as they see your boat approach. :eek:

So, is the main sheet set close at hand so you can let her go in case of a gust? Cause... looks like there's something bending the upper branches of the 3 trees in the background.

And how come no upper batten? Saw it in the pile in the original sail loft picture. You gotta get a friend to shoot some video of you sailing. Your set up is bad ass.

Sorry, makes me grin like a schoolgirl with a secret.
Heh, I had my bigger daughter tugging on the sheet, just as I took this pic a gust hit and the boat went sideways
"LET GO LET GO ". Lolz, we did laugh....
It's been blowing gales here, well spotted. I had to rig up in the lee of the barn and keep her head to...hence the moody pics.

The batten, it was under the sail bag, I didn't see it immediately and was in a right hurry to get the sail up before it belted down. I took a chance there - see the power lines about six foot from the leech ?

Excuse the slack traveller, main focus was on the sail
