contender main in reasonable condition

Post by Obscured by clouds » Fri Jul 29, 2011 10:22 pm

Anyone out there with a spare contender main in reasonable condition.

the main on Unit2/7 is getting a little old and baggy and something newer would make her go better as well as more easily handled.

editing to add that it needs to be an older sail cut for a very stiff mast, not a bendy job like a modern sail would fit.

Yes, I have an old 'not loose foot' main that is pretty useable lying in a locker in my boat shed. Can't remember the make or the age, but it's not in bad nick at all. Where are you?

Send me a pm!

of course you could aim to come to the HUnts meet and pick up the sail there!

I'm up in N Wales so a long way off.

I'm aiming to be at the National bash over the August bank holiday w/e. Anything else this year is unlikely, due to work on house and being 'between jobs' or 'retired early' [delete as appropriate!]

How much do you want for it, I'll happily pay postage if sending it is the only option.

So Rupert, I am going to get the sail to Mike who will bring it to Northampton. Could you then take it to Roadford?
