ACE Main

Andrew helped me take the main off of ACE and we brought it upstairs in the clubhouse to have a look at it.

Last Wed we had ACE out is 25+ knots and lost the bottom batten, and sail flogged the leech just above where the batten was:

Leech is ripped about 2ft

2nd batten from the top will need a new batten pocket

This is the top full batten
Will need some repairs
Actually, the sail is in pretty good shape considering the abuse it took in the 300, the Freeman Cup, and last Wednesday.

We took out the battens and will transfer them to the dacron main to sail ACE tomorrow night.

I will have to get some batten stock tomorrow.
