Sails on different masts
We're looking to buy a second hand set of sails for our Mk1 Winder and wondered just how well a set cut for a Chipstow mast would set on our old Superspars carbon mast.
I'm not sure that the sails are cut any differantly. The masts are just set up differantly, a superspar has more prebend than a chipstow etc.
Thanks, but surely that imply's that sails for a Superspar should have more luff curve and so on.
edit: shroud tension.
I'm not ba sail maker but i do know that that depends on all sorts of things. The reason you set up a SS mast with more prebend is because it is less flexible at the top so there is still an element of force involved to get it to do what a Chipstow does automatically.
