Sail Purchase Window Has Opened
The Fleet 1 approved sail purchase window is October 5th to November 30th, 2015. This is your only opportunity to buy new sails until after the Fleet 1 2016 Championships!
According to the Class bylaws:
III.H.8. For a Class Yacht, the Owner may purchase one jib sail in each calendar year and one main sail in every second calendar year.
After purchase, the Fleet 1 Measurer will inspect, measure and sign the sail before it may be used.
According to the Fleet 1 bylaws:
III.C.7. The Fleet has appointed Elliott/Pattison Sailmakers as its sole permitted sail maker for new mainsails, and Ullman Sails as its sole permitted sail maker for new jibs. No other sail/sail maker combinations will be allowed.
The cost of a new mail sail from Elliott/Pattison Sailmakers is $1,594. They are offering a 20% discount to Fleet 1 members: $1275.20. You can save an additional $25 by re-using your main batons. They can be reached at 949 645-6697.
Ullman Sails is offering the jib sail at 793 with 10% discounts available for 100% deposits and 5% discounts available for 50% deposits. Download their flyer here. Ullman Sails can be reached at 714-432-1860
If you are buying a new Mainsail, consider donating your old one to NHYC for possible use in the Baldwin Cup team races.
