Apart from the fact they are Lymington which is conveniant for me Sanders have been making some very good Class 40 sails and are keen to develope Mini sails and I will definitely be going that way for my new mainsail, having said that I will probably look to incidences for the headsails.

If you are going to Sanders for the main then why not for the head sail.. at least then you will have one sail maker doing everything for you and as you say they are where you live.

As regards the Class 40 I think you mean the boat Flair which is an Elan 40 and is not the same as the Class 40

hi everyone,

I went to talk to Ian Brown at Quantom UK (Hamble Point).

I'm doing a 25 sqm, of 2.2 oz Nylon radial cut. Fractional halyard and Pole end.
Is that what everyone is using, or Masthead? Pogos can't have it on mid pole right?

Next year, after some training I go to France to check out sails. I still need to find out what I want my sails to be.

would be great to have those Polers Nick... Leov where are you going to place them?

Thanks everyone
cheers

If I get them, on my site at the Pogo2 page.

Why can the P2 not have it halfway the pole ?

Nick

The Elan 40 Flair certainly has Sanders sails, but so do class 40's in fact the following was copied and pasted direct from the Class 40 website news section.

July 2005  - SANDERS SAILS in Lymington , UK, become the first sailmaker to offer a full wardrobe of high specification sails for the Class 40 at under Euro 30,000 ex- VAT*.  More details on the 'Costs' page.

Not sure how many boats but there were certainly several boats on the last TJV which did alright with their sails.

Reason for possibly looking at incidence for the headsails was the comment about a reefing genoa, I was intrigued as to how you could get a sail with the amount of overlap that a genoa has, to be as efficient when you reef it as a solent.

About the mid pole, thats what I was told, I may be wrong.
and the pole doesn't have any thing where I can attached the fuiler.

just a loop around the pole, but include sidestays (guys or whatever you call them) and the bobstay. Pole will be loaded in compression that way.
