R.I.P. Headsail

Posted by on September 27, 2012

It had a damn good innings, but CCY advise that the original jib on XTsea has reached the end of it’s useful life.

New one is on order from the local sailmaker. Will be constructed from Contender Fibercon which is a 9 1/2 ounce Dacron fabric. Supposed to be adequate for the strains of chartering, so here’s hoping. Just over $2k in cost.
